    Good luck with that. I discovered, in my recent futile conversations with 'them', that they won't even do things that they agree with.

    There's a good reason for that.

    Marston Lane will be entertaining.

    Would it not be feasible to wait until the road through the Taylor Wimpey estate is done, then run through there?

    The only surprise is they haven't chosen the road between Tixall and Milford.

    access to and from Parkside will be "via escort" does this mean that somebody in a hi-viz jacket will walk in front waving a white flag?

    Stafford can't even sort out the traffic light timing for normal everyday driving. Seems to be virtually no effort to match sets of lights to each other to avoid stopping traffic at every set of lights

    Cue, the traffic light game.Think I picked this up on here a while ago.
    Anyone driving into Stafford, for every traffic light you go through without stopping have a point. For every stop deduct a point. More often than not you're in a minus points situation by journeys end.

    Stopping at a red light in Stafford is optional isn’t it?

    I used to live on Foregate Street and that was a regular occurrence. I feel your pain.

    What happened to drivers takin responsibility for when they pulled out of a junction. Perhaps if they applied that logic, just overnight, and turned the bloody lights off, traffic might actually flow through the town. . . . . . . But what do I know........

    Apparently there is a gap in the queue . . . Must be the 'Boon Grove Triangle' . . . :D . . . but from here it's not that obvious :?:

    The queues down the A5 to Gailey were way past the Lapley turning at 8.15 this morning, I'm guessing as a knock on effect.
