ALL the money spent on the changes to Milford Mill Road have certainly had an effect. The traffic used to flow freely with drivers using common sense and there wasn't ever a holdup. There hadn't been an accident there since February 2016, and that was only a minor one. Now there is almost always a needless queue at the traffic lights at the railway bridge which only let the first four or five cars through before changing.

Stationary cars mean more pollution. The other day I encountered a car transporter and trailer coming under the bridge and, because of the widening, it could actually get through, that is until it met traffic as the road narrows. I

t appears to be another costly, failed attempt to solve a problem that didn't exist. Can anyone explain the reasoning behind it?
