SJ7697 : Junction of Barton Road and Peel Hall Road

taken 4 years ago, near to Eccles, Salford, Great Britain

Junction of Barton Road and Peel Hall Road
Junction of Barton Road and Peel Hall Road
This used to be where the A575 crossed the B5230 but the A575 was truncated in the 1960s and Barton Road, which crosses Barton Swing bridge and passes round the northern side of the Trafford Centre, is now the B5211. The B5230 Barton Lane used to continue through this crossroads but Peel Green Lane is now unclassified. The traffic-light controlled crossroads is also a box junction.
Box Junction

A box junction is a traffic control measure designed to prevent gridlock at busy road junctions. The surface of the junction is marked with a criss-cross grid of diagonal painted lines and vehicles may not enter the area so marked unless their exit from the junction is clear; drivers may enter the box and wait when they want to turn right and are stopped from doing so only by oncoming traffic or by other vehicles waiting to turn right.
