And lo it came to pass. After months of delays and aggravation the new traffic light system at the top of Westgate is unveiled.

And what an utter shambles, now adding a breathtaking seven minutes to the morning commute.

Even by Highways Agency standards, this is a work of staggering incompetence. Badly phased lights that seem to foster an “every man for themselves” situation.

The Burnley driver has long been a beleaguered soul who grits his teeth with the patience of a saint. The people responsible for this monstrosity should be pelted with soggy fruit in the market square. Merry Christmas one and all.
