A mini roundabout is set to be installed at the junction of Victoria Street and Sheet Street in Windsor.
The Royal Borough has announced plans to remove the traffic lights there and replace them with a new roundabout, with a zebra crossing on the southern arm of Sheet Street and an uncontrolled crossing point in Victoria Street.
Two parking spaces on the east side of Sheet Street will be relocated to the west side and three new parking bays are proposed in Victoria Street.
Cllr Geoff Hill, cabinet member for highways and transport, said: "This work is part of the council administration's manifesto commitment to review and remove traffic signals where possible.
"Every effort will be made to keep disruption to a minimum during the works, and the contractor will be working during off-peak hours as well as adapting operations to suit the Guard Change."
Work is set to start during the week beginning Monday, November 10, and last around four weeks, although the completion of the zebra crossing is likely to take longer.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
