New Puffin Crossing on Barrow High Street

The new Puffin Crossing on Barrow High Street came into service on the 28th April 2021 after about a week of road works to replace the old Zebra Crossing.

Puffins are traffic lights that have sensors on the top which keep the lights at red if they detect any pedestrians crossing. This means that even if someone takes a long time to cross they won't turn to green.

The new crossing should make it much safer for pedestrians to cross the road. There were many occasions when drivers didn't stop for pedestrians trying to cross the road at the old Zebra Crossing, and many near misses.
