Further to the numerous letters regarding the new traffic lights in Earsdon Road, I wish to inform residents that I share their concerns and I submitted a complaint on behalf of a fellow resident over a month ago and made reference to the letters.
As a user of this road every morning, I have witnessed near misses caused by frustrated motorists constantly changing lanes to gain an advantage as well as cars running through red lights.
The organisation controlling these lights is Envirolink at Newcastle City Council.
They are constantly asking me where these lights are and I have stated that they are adjacent to the new West Park housing site.
However, the lights are not logged on their computer so they think that they do not exist.
I have now asked for a site meeting with Envirolink but I am not convinced that they will find me. I will keep residents informed.
