PUBLIC views are being sought on plans to remove an existing roundabout at the junction of West Dyke, Corporation and Thrush Road in Redcar and replace it with traffic signals.

The planned improvements were highlighted as part of the Tees Valley Bus Network improvement scheme which looks at ways of easing traffic congestion in the area.

Cabinet Member for Highways, Planning and Transport, Councillor Helen McLuckie said:

"Traffic signals at this roundabout will help to reduce delays for all road users by maximising capacity at the junction as well as benefitting pedestrians because the scheme will include improved pedestrian crossings.

I would encourage road users and residents to view the plans online at or come along to one of the engagement events to find out more and tell us what they think."

A public engagement event will be held in a trailer adjacent to the roundabout on Monday 20 August and Tuesday 21 August and a display will be situated in Redcar Library from 20 24 August. The public can also provide their comments by contacting the Engineering Section at Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council on (t) 01642 774774 or emailing or by writing to:
