Temporary traffic lights cause long tailbacks
8:28am Thursday 1st August 2013 in News
Motorists found themselves stuck in long tailbacks along the A27 near Worthing on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
Roadworks began on Monday on the A27 Upper Brighton Road in Worthing but a miscalculation in the intervals between changes on temporary lights at the Grove Lodge roundabout resulted in long queues on the road.
A spokesman for the Highways Transport Agency apologised to any drivers who had experienced delays.
He said: “The new traffic signals at the roundabout have been operational since Monday and will help the flow of traffic across the junction as well as provide two safe crossing points for pedestrians and cyclists on the A27.
“After alterations are made to any junction, it takes a few days for drivers to adjust to the changes and also for the new traffic lights to be calibrated to ensure maximum traffic flow as traffic stabilises following the duration of the roadworks.”
