Seeing red over traffic lights

Share this article

Since Thursday of last week there has been three way set of traffic lights at the junction of Law Lane, Cain Lane and Towngate in Southowram.

No road works are taking place within these traffic lights.Approximately 300 yards further along Towngate Northern Gas Networks are replacing gas pipes and there is a further set of three way traffic lights there, quite understandably. Northern Gas Networks informed me today that the first set of lights have been put there by Calderdale Council and they have no idea why they’re there. Calderdale Council don’t know why they’re there either, but after waiting for 8 minutes (!!!) to have my telephone call answered, they said they will log my call. I asked for a call back tolet me know why the lights were there but they are unable to do this!

There is a sign on Ashday Lane stating that Northern Gas Roadworks will begin on 8th May for four weeks.
