  • Traffic light on A449 going north has been moved and is now facing the road to the right so if you want to turn right from A449 at The Harrows the traffic light is facing the road on the right. This means that cars driving out of the Old Stafford Road think the traffic light is telling them it is safe to turn right into A449. It's obviously not safe. I've just witnessed a very close near miss
