  • Traffic at a standstill along the entire length of Hackney road due to the temp lights at cambridge heath road. Drove through at 5pm today, and it took me 30 mins to get from Cremer st to Bishops way. There was no work going on, simply a few bollards in the road. The light change was as long for the 4 vehicles on Bishops way, as it was for the 100 odd on Hackney road. Show some respect and get this fixed.

  • Temporary traffic lights not working since 08:15. Spoke to workmen on site who have reported to company managing temporary traffic lights. However this is very dangerous as there are 4 converging roads, and 8 pedestrian crossing lights not working.
