Bolton council is hoping to reduce the number of road traffic accidents taking place by completing new roadworks in a blackspot for such incidents.
According to the Bolton News, the local authority - which is led by councillor Cliff Morris - has begun work to make the junction of Derby Street, Fletcher Street and University Way safer.
During this operation - which is expected to take around eight weeks to carry out and will cost around £275,000 - the road surface will be re-laid, while new traffic lights and pedestrian crossings will also be installed.
A spokesman for the council told the news source that efforts will be made to minimise the disruption this work will cause and lane closures will be in place at times while the resurfacing is completed.
Over the last three years, 19 people have been injured in a total of 16 road traffic accidents at the junction.
