2:38pm Tuesday 18th September 2012 in News
COUNCIL bosses have apologised for not giving advance notice of the controversial changes to Bridge Foot.
Work will be completed tonight, Tuesday, but a spokesman for Warrington Borough Council has warned drivers to take care with the new layout.
Drivers have been complaining about the changes, and numeours near misses have been reported by motorists on the island.
The spokesman said: “Work has recently been carried out to change the lane markings at Bridge Foot roundabout to help improve traffic flow which is part of an ongoing programme of works.
“Advance warning signs should have been in place by the contractor to advise motorists of the new markings, this did not happen and we apologise for any confusion and inconvenience caused.
"We are working on rectifying the situation as soon as possible and additional warning signs have now been installed on the relevant approaches to the roundabout.
“Remaining changes to the lane markings are due to be completed this evening and we will closely monitor the impact on traffic flow.
"We would advise motorists to take care while familiarising themselves with the new road layout.”
