The Department of Public Works is ask for offers for a $2.5 million traffic signal system upgrade project.

The project includes upgrades to eight traffic signal systems around the island.

It will also include four typical four-intersection box-type cable span cable systems: Route 1/Route 6, Route 1/Route 4, Route 4/Route 15, and Route 4/Route 10.

The upgrades also include a mast-arm signal system at the Route 1/Aspinal Avenue intersection and a diagonal-type cable span cable system at the Route 1/5th Street intersection.

“The project also includes the replacement of traffic loop detectors at the Route 4/Chalan Canton Tutujan intersection and the Route 1/Route 14A intersection, and the installation of GPS clocks at various locations,” said Vincent. Arriola, Director of the Department of Public Works.

The project is expected to start in the second quarter of 2023, with a contract duration of 240 days. There will be limited disruption to traffic flow when the traffic systems are installed, according to Arriola.

“This is a safety upgrade and improvement project consistent with Governor (Lou) Leon Guerrero’s goal of having safer roads for Guam residents while achieving the goal to use improved technology for better traffic flow. The intersections included in this project are the upgrades that were long overdue and therefore it was a priority to release them for procurement,” said Arriola.

The project is funded by the Federal Highway Administration under the Federal-Aid Highway Program. This is the first of three project phases.

Wixams: £13m plans for new 20-year-old rail station made public https://fromthedeskofmikestewart.com/wixams-13m-plans-for-new-20-year-old-rail-station-made-public/ Fri, 24 Jun 2022 10:08:36 +0000 https://fromthedeskofmikestewart.com/wixams-13m-plans-for-new-20-year-old-rail-station-made-public/ Plans to build a new station at Wixams should be subject to public consultation.

Plans to build a new station at Wixams should be subject to public consultation. Planning permission for the new town of Wixams, which was granted in 2003, included a “station area”.

A planning application for the new station was approved in 2012, but the project never materialized and the permission eventually expired. When it became apparent that Network Rail and the developer were unable to deliver the station, Bedford Borough Council took over the reins of the project.

The council has allocated £13.4million of Section 106 money – financial contributions from property developments – and invested £26million to ensure the project continues. In addition to a new station, there will be parking and ancillary infrastructure.

The new station would be located in the aptly named Station Quarter, on the western edge of the Wixams, and on the Midland Main Line between Bedford and Flitwick stations. It will be served by up to four Thameslink trains per hour in each direction.

Plans for the facility will include two platforms, a station building complete with restrooms, waiting room and café, and parking for up to 350 vehicles. There will be provisions for electric vehicles, blue badges, secure bike parks and provisions for taxis and buses.

Two town planning files must be filed. A “reserved questions” request to provide further details of the proposal and a full planning request relating to the land required for the construction of the platforms and works on the railway line.

Bedford Borough Council is now launching a public consultation ahead of the official planning application. There will be two drop-in events for local residents, businesses and interested parties to learn more and ask questions. These will take place at Wixams Retirement Village, Bedford Road, Wixams, on June 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and June 28 from 2 p.m. to 6:45 p.m.

Mayor Dave Hodgson said: “The people of Wixams have been promised a station for a long time, and I’m thrilled we were able to step in, fill the funding gap and help get this station back on track. This is a significant investment in the borough’s transport provision and creates more opportunities for sustainable travel here in Bedford Borough. Please take a look at the plans, come to one of the appointments if you can and let us know what you think.

There will be an information section showing station plans available on the Bedford Borough Council website. Or feedback can be provided by emailing WixamsStation@bedford.gov.uk, or writing to Wixams Station, Major Projects, Borough Hall, Cauldwell St, Bedford, MK42 9AP.
