Traffic lights are causing huge tailbacks every day.

The recently installed traffic lights are causing huge delays and queues of a mile long or more every day. A roundabout would have been far more suitable.

  • Agreed !! if they knew just how big Great Western Park was going to be, and they MUST have know from the plans, the fact that they put traffic lights at this junction AND the junction with the main Didcot to A34 road is the stupidest bit of planning. There are roundabouts throughout Didcot which generally work ok, but the GWP traffic lights just completely stop the flow and cause tailbacks in all directions.

  • Thank you for your report. We have assessed it and found that it does not currently meet the criteria for intervention, so will not be fixing at this time.

  • How many miles long does the tailback have to be to meet the criteria for intervention ? Less than 1 mile ? More than 1 mile ?
