The first phase of work saw the four-way junction where Fernside Road intersects with Hunt Road and St Mary’s Road undergo significant upgrades to improve safety for school children and pedestrians using this busy junction and improve traffic flow.

Improvements include:

  • New toucan crossings (which have space for both people walking and cycling to cross at the same time) on all arms of the four-way junction 
  • Dropped kerbs before and after all crossing points to allow people on bikes to cycle from the road to the crossings
  • Resurfaced carriageway and pavements
  • Additional wayfinding signs along St Mary’s Road
