Traffic lights a jam

EDITOR – Now the new traffic lights are operating the traffic jams get worse.

Better for the pedestrians now - they can cross in safety, but it seems to extend the waiting period for traffic.

Why on earth was a right turn arrow not included for traffic turning right into Oxford Street particularly as a large volume of this traffic tries to get to Tesco?

It only wants one vehicle to turn right here, having to wait for oncoming traffic to clear, and the whole of King Street and Queen Street comes to a standstill?

What was the point of spending a huge amount of money installing these new lights just to make matters worse?

Heaven help the town when we have to cope with the next race day. Why cannot we get things right first time?
