TRAFFIC lights are to be installed on High Hoe Road by Notts County Council in response to reported accidents in the area.
The authority said the lights will replace the existing zebra crossing at the Bracebridge junction and that it will improve nearby street lighting.
Bracebridge resident Geoff Coe, 83, said he was delighted with the news after several months of lobbying the council to make road safety improvements.
“I am very pleased that some good has come out of it and I am sure it will make a difference,” he said.
“All we can hope now is that these new traffic lights will help pedestrians to get across the road safely, because we have had several accidents there in the past few months.”
