AFTER months of work, a traffic light system at the junction of Basin Road/Low Field/James Street is scheduled to come into effect from Friday, March 13.

The area has long been a dangerous spot for motorists attempting to cross Basin Road from the Basin View/James Street sides and councillors had been calling for years for something to be done.

The road through O’Rahillys Villas leading to the junction is closed during the day at the moment to allow works on the road.
