TEMPORARY traffic lights and wider pavements have been introduced in Stockton Heath in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

A new crossing for pedestrians has been added on London Road, around 50 metres from the existing crossroads by the Victoria buildings.

A second is in place by the footpath from the Forge car park to London Road.

While barriers have been installed near to the shops to create wider pavements.
