an unwelcome mess and goodness knows why the traffic circulation is
anticlockwise causing two swap over points but at least it wasn’t gridlock at 5 p.m. on day one. The
queues were not excessively long and would have added no more than five minutes to a normal journey.
The worst queues were where Eastbound traffic in Albion Road met Westbound traffic at the roundabout at the bottom end of Highland Road and Highland Road’s junction with Broadway and in front of the Civic Centre.
Bus users are badly affected as there is a long diversion to the bus station, buses travelling North in Highland Road could be heading in opposite directions, once clear of the disruption, and the ‘Bus due’ signs at the stops no longer work. Late buses and no idea when the next one will turn up. Just like the old days.
