Double roundabout for Town End junction?

COUNCILLORS have revealed plans to replace traffic lights at Pontefract’s Town End junction with a double roundabout.

Wakefield Council said the layout was the “preferred choice” with residents at a series of public meetings about the notorious traffic hotspot last November.

Highways officers will now prepare detailed designs and costs for the project, which will be included in the next Local Transport Plan highways programme.
