Delays on A590 Cumbria due to temporary traffic lights

TEMPORARY traffic lights are causing delays on the A590 between Barrow and Ulverston.

Work is being carried out along the Dalton bypass and traffic has been reduced to one lane. 

The speed limit has been reduced to 40 mph.

Have your say

I am all for protecting the safety of the contractor's workers but the use of traffic lights here is unnecessary and causing huge delays. The cones could come to the centre of the carriageway and still allow two way traffic as at Greenodd, with the peed limit reduced to 30 or even 20 mph. The problem is that the main contractor always subcontracts to a traffic light contractor, all of which take cuts and increase the bill to the taxpayer with no regard for the economic cost of the disruption caused. The A590 must be a gold mine for traffic light contractors. Many of these installations could be avoided with better coning and speed limits allowing continuous two way traffic. Temporary traffic lights are a contracting scam that blights our lives and seriously damages the local economy.
