  • Thank you for your patience whilst our inspector reviewed your report.

    Our engineer attended the site and found that there’s a part that needs replacing. This wasn’t something he could fix on the same day as this will require road closures to complete.

    We will provide a further update to confirm when the work has been completed.

    Kind regards Highways England

  • Since this incident there are still problems. The lights on the A6108 change to green then mid roundabout there is another set of lights that are on red. The traffic then has to stop on the mid roundabout lights and then blocks the east- west traffic, this caused a huge build up resulting in a long queue on the A1.

    It seems that if the lights on the A6108 were in sync so that they were green and the lights mid roundabout were green there would be no traffic left standing in the carriage way east off the A1 and going west to the A66, help all the traffic flow more effectively.
