So I was thinking when driving home… The temporary traffic lights they use when doing road construction are absolutely no use. They have them set up in Birkhill just now and previously in Muirhead. They are only temporary so get carter from site to site and are not in the best of condition. They have been jamming on the red light which brings traffic to a standstill and this prevents road users being on time for work for example. They also cause bother for work men who are trying to get on with their jobs always having to stop their duties to fix the problem or take it in their own hands to physically guide the traffic. This causes delay for work in every angle – the work men trying to do their job- the road users trying to get to their jobs with high volume of traffic in rush hour times especially and the problem of roads being faulty for longer than needed.
I have spoken to my Dad who is an area manager and he finds this a big concern also and proably worth looking into.
