Annoying pointless traffic lights

Why are these lights here? A van went into the ditch before Christmas probably because the driver was not paying attention as there is nothing wrong with the road!!! It can’t be because of this.............could it?

In an almost identical situation a couple of miles north (at Marcham) a crane came of the road and this was managed by a few cones.

  • Thank you for your report. These traffic lights are in no way pointless, as they are there to maintain the safety of road users. The verge is severely damaged, which means until it has been repaired, the traffic lights will remain in situ. As it is affecting the road surface also, it cannot be a quick repair. Please find alternative route if causing you issues.
