Road works in progress...NOT

They put traffic lights in on Friday afternoon, then went home. No one worked all weekend and now Monday mid day there is still no one there. This is a major trunk road. A36. What gives them the right to carry out the work in such a poor fashion? They could easily have waited till Monday to start work and avoid all the disruption over the weekend. Plus the lights failed to red on Saturday evening. Pretty dangerous. Can you fine them for this sort xaper? Geoffrey Frost 07771 921 681
