Road works

Postby pantomime cow » Fri Jan 12, 2018 9:39 pm

Temporary traffic lights are operating again in Flitwick Road by the junction with Grange Road and the new Ampthill Gardens housing development, causing long queues during busy times. It's the second time since Christmas, and we had this maybe half a dozen times last year. Does anybody know why, what is going on – and will it ever be finished?

why is it felt that when they build new houses that people can't drive out of their estates without a roundabout? Can they no longer use a T junction

There is a leaking water main at the junction and the work is scheduled to go on until the 15th.
Carolyn the reason for the mini roundabouts is to force people to give way and allow others to get onto the main road as people rarely stop to let others out at T junctions .

The junction by the park has no roundabout, shouldn't there be one there? There must be more traffic on that one.

The road has been up several times by the school for the new houses there, seems that they never get it right first time. i suppose they disturb the old infrastructure and then it creates cracks and leaks further down.
