Anglesea Road pedestrian crossing road works start 4 June

Portsmouth City Council has now confirmed work will start on Monday, 4 June, on the Anglesea Road/Park Road junction to make it safer for pedestrians crossing the road. This will take up to 20 weeks.

Following on from the City Council’s previous update, the pedestrian crossing to the south of the junction will be improved to make the crossing safer and the narrow crossing to the north will be removed.

The new layout will prevent vehicles travelling north on Anglesea Road from turning left into Park Road. This will reduce the number of traffic light phases, which will improve the flow of traffic and will provide more time for pedestrians to cross.

The junction will include new low-level traffic signals for cyclists The early-release signals, give cyclists a head start over motorised vehicles. Cyclists wishing to enter Park Road can do so using the new cycle path.

Work will take place overnight:

  • Monday to Thursday – 8.30pm to 5.30am
  • Friday nights – midnight to 8.ooam

Lanes will remain open during the day with signed diversion routes in place at night. A temporary pedestrian crossing point will be available at all times.

If you have further questions or concerns, or would like to report any issues, please contact Portsmouth City Council on 023 9283 4092.
