Drivers face more Stortford town centre delays as new traffic signals erected in Link Road for Northgate End development
Motorists in Bishop's Stortford will be confronted with more temporary traffic lights next week when the latest set springs up in Link Road.
There will be 24/7 signals at the A1250 Link Road junction with Northgate End from Monday until Sunday (Nov 1-7). The works are to "facilitate development works" for the multi-storey car park scheme. Drivers are warned to expect delays.
The bad news for motorists follows temporary signals being placed at the top of Windhill and Bells Hill on Thursday (Oct 28), which are set to be in place until Sunday November 7.
Temporary four-way signals at the Hockerill crossroads this week have had a knock-on effect on traffic in the town centre.
Drivers were also faced with roadworks in Hadham Road, near Patmore Close and Rye Street. Other roads recently affected by works include Parsonage Lane and Stansted Road.
The proliferation of roadworks in the town, mainly to facilitate the various building projects, have attracted caustic comments on Facebook, with one person putting a spoof picture of a sign saying "Work starts here on 5th January for 147 years".
