Traffic lights at two major junctions in Withernsea and Beverley are to be replaced as part of an £150,000 upgrade scheme.
Work is due to begin in Queen Street, Withernsea, on Monday 18 February, and in North Bar Without in Beverley on Monday 11 March to install the new lights.
The scheme will see the older 230-volt traffic lights replaced with brand new energy-saving, 48-volt LED lights.
New controllers will also be installed which use smarter technology to improve the way junctions work, together with new robust aluminium poles which could last up to 50 years.
The work is to be carried out by council contractor Siemens.
The work in Withernsea will take place in Queen Street at its junction with Pier Road and Station Road, where 16 traffic lights will be replaced.
The scheme is scheduled to take three weeks, during which time four-way temporary traffic lights will be put in place, together with a temporary pedestrian crossing.
In Beverley, 12 traffic lights will be replaced, including lights at the pedestrian crossing nearby in Wylies Road.
The work is expected to take three weeks and four-way temporary traffic lights will be put in place.
Paul Tripp, head of streetscene services at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “The traffic lights at both these junctions are showing signs of age. In Withernsea, for example, the sea air has caused corrosion to the steel poles and heads of the traffic lights.
“So we need to install these new traffic lights and poles which are designed to save energy and to last much longer.
“There will be some disruption to traffic during this short period of work because of the temporary traffic lights in place and we’d like to thank motorists and pedestrians in advance for their patience.”
