  • It isn;t just the A34, I sat on Hagbourne Hill for 35 minutes this morning on a road that normally takes me 3 to 5 minutes to drive along. There were queues up the hill towards West Ilsley on Bury Down as well (I have seen anything like this before). I work in a school in West Berkshire and a number of our students were late for exams because of this. Surely these traffic lights can operate outside the rush hour (West Berkshire managed to do this when they resurfaced the road between East Ilsley and Compton).
