Apology after sudden appearance of temporary traffic lights
2:47pm Friday 25th October 2013 in News
TEMPORARY traffic lights have been installed in an arterial route in a North-East town following an equipment failure.
BT requested the emergency installation of three-way temporary traffic signals in Parkgate, Darlington, on Friday (October 25).
The lights were needed to allow a contractor to access the site to repair the fault.
A spokesman for Darlington Borough Council said: “Unfortunately the work is required as an emergency and the temporary traffic lights… are very likely to be in place for the rest of the day.”
The council has apologised to drivers for the short notice of the temporary lights’ arrival and any disruption caused.
