ONLINE VOTE: Is it the right decision to install traffic lights on the A614 at Rose Cottage junction?
A BUSY road junction at Rufford, which has seen 11 accidents over the past five-and-a-half years, is to have traffic lights installed.
The junction of the A614 with the B6034, known as Rose Cottage junction - was identified as a problem site by Nottinghamshire County Council’s accident investigation unit in 2008.
Traffic attempting to join the A614 from the B6034 side road also suffers substantial delays in addition to the high rate of accidents at the junction.
Work was due to begin on the traffic lights yesterday and the installations will cost Nottinghamshire County Council around £300,000.
Coun Richard Jackson, chairman of the council’s transport and highways committee, says the authority has been keen to signalise the Rose Cottage junction for some time.
“The A614 is a major route into Nottingham and carries high volumes of traffic, especially during the morning and evening rush hours,” he said.
The work is set to be completed by mid February.
