The team and the transport systems which help keep Salisbury on the move are on the move themselves to help improve the service.
The Salisbury Intelligent Transport System – which helps control traffic light changes and relays electronic information to car park, park and ride and bus users – will move from its base at 37 Endless Street to Wiltshire Council’s Bourne Hill offices from June 11.
This move is set to save council tax payers money and also improve the reliability of the system thanks to an improved signal. However, it will mean changes to the way traffic signals operate during the week the move takes place, which may cause minor delays.
Electronic signs informing drivers about available car park spaces will also be temporarily switched off during the move.
Cabinet member for highways, Dick Tonge, said:
Moving our Salisbury transport team and the intelligent transport system is part of the council’s wider plans to reduce the number of offices it has, helping to save millions of pounds every year. It will also help improve the service as our car park electronic signs are triggered by radio aerials and there is a stronger signal at Bourne Hill. We will ensure any disruption that may arise during this move is kept to a minimum.
The Salisbury Intelligence Transport System equipment will be moved during the week commencing June 11 and is expected to be completed that week.
During the move the electronic signs advising people how many spaces are available at park and ride sites and at Central, Culver Street and the Old George Mall car parks will be switched off. The sites themselves will operate as usual.
The move will not affect the real time passenger information signs at bus stops.
