Traffic lights have made life easier at Gannow

I hold my hands up today and admit I was wrong about the introduction of traffic lights at Gannow Top roundabout and junctions.

I use that route every day and have to admit that since the traffic light system was activated last week it has been easier than ever to get to and from the town centre – even at the dreaded rush hour.

Roadworks at Gannow roundabout cause disruption to traffic.

And. having spoken to a fair few other drivers, my straw poll concludes the lights have actually made motorists’ lives easier.

Our highway planners often come in for some right grief, but in this instance they are to be applauded for not only making the roundabout safer, but for also improving traffic flow.
