A pedestrian crossing in Corby is to be refurbished from next week.
The crossing, in Lyvden Way close to the entrance to Morrisons, has been identified as needing improvement due to its age and condition.
The works are scheduled to start on Monday, March 16, and are expected to last for five weeks.
During this period, pedestrians will be diverted to the existing traffic controller crossing approximately 200m to the west.
Cllr John McGhee said: “I have expressed my concerns to Northants County Council about it previously, so am delighted that it will be upgraded to feature the latest LED signal heads and toucan pedestrian facilities.
“Apologies for any inconvenience the works may cause, however I am sure people will agree that the refurbishments will lead to an improved level of safety for local residents and school children crossing the road.”
