Highbridge grinds to a halt
after traffic lights failure
ground to a halt in Highbridge on Friday evening (February 6th)
after the failure of a set of four-way temporary traffic lights.
queues of vehicles built up along Church Street and the A38 for
several hours after the lights became stuck on red.
lights are in place while three months of major roadworks are
carried out in the town. Burnham-On-Sea.com was first
reported the work earlier this year, which will see gas mains
along Church Street being replaced. The work is being conducted
until the end of April. Work was temporarily halted on Friday
by the wintry weather.
