GRIDLOCK: Traffic lights are causing chaos

Over a year ago I predicted gridlock on the roads around Four Lane Ends and the Longbenton area after hearing traffic lights were to be installed.

I was wrong. It’s chaos.

Our local Labour council in its wisdom replaced a small roundabout that let traffic flow smoothly with four sets of traffic lights that has cars standing still as far as the eye can see, polluting the area with exhaust fumes.

I’m afraid this is what you get when you vote Labour in local elections.

To the public living near the Billy Mill roundabout, it’s your turn next.
