Three sets of traffic lights on the A428 are resulting in long delays for drivers

Gigaclear is currently installing Ultrafast Fibre Broadband to homes in Harlestone along the A428.

The installation work, between the Brampton junction and the Fox and Hounds pub, has resulted in two-way traffic lights being set up along the road.

Drivers have been faced with long delays coming in and out of town, particular during rush hour at the start and end of the day.
