Dangerous Traffic Lights

Reported in the Current Roadworks category anonymously at 12:39, Thu 4 October 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

Traffic lights have been again installed on Celsea Place for further works to the awful Linden Homes development. No advanced notice was given that these lights were being installed and no notice is being given as to how long they will be in situ for.

The fencing that has been installed along the middle of the road has made it too narrow for a lot of vehicles to pass thus forcing them onto the verge to pass.

The other issue is that people heading along Celsea Place towards Panters Road and who stop at the lights block Celsea Place for those vehicles who are trying to drive down to Papist Way.

This is yet another example of the Highways Dept not having a clue as to what is going on and showing a complete disregard to the impact that these further works are causing the local residents. It is clear that nobody from the Highways Dept lives in Cholsey or are affected by these works.

  • Still no change. The fencing is still making the road too narrow so lorries etc have to mount the verge - causing more damage. The lights are not changing when traffic is waiting (and nothing approaching from the other direction) meaning people are going through on red lights.

    Yet more evidence of a complete lack of consideration for the local residents by OCC Higjways who not only have authorised these traffic lights they're not doing anything to get them removed or even respond to concerns raised by the local residents.
