New street lights switched on in Daventry

NEW street lights have been switched on either side of a pedestrian crossing in Daventry after requests from residents.

The lights are near the junction of Braunston Road and Morning Star Road.

People had complained to Northamptonshire County Council that the old lights on the crossing were not bright enough for cars to see people crossing.

Pedestrians also said they could not see traffic coming towards them.

Cllr Chris Long said: “The new lights are now fully operational and residents report a significant improvement of night time visibility on both the pedestrian crossing its self and also the road approaching it.”
