A motion to introduce traffic signals at the intersection of Howick Street and High Street to improve pedestrian safety was withdrawn at Monday’s City of Launceston meeting.
Director of infrastructure services Shane Eberhardt said the council was continuing to engage with local residents and expected the matter to be brought back to aldermen once that was complete.
He said there was not yet a clear time frame about when the decision would be made.
The council first revealed it plans for the traffic lights last month.

One would be across Howick Street, on the western side of High Street, while the second would cross High Street from the corner of Howick Street.
A number of changes to the islands and kerbs in the area are also proposed.
