    Madford mini roundabout now has a pair of temporary lights on it, with single-lane working, but they don't seem to be functioning - however, you can easily see the other light and nip through when you get fed up waiting.

    It is not immediately apparent how you should proceed through the cone forest - take your time - the signage is not much help.


    Also, some 'amusing' half-wit had decided to place the No Parking cones across the road.

    Anyone know what’s going on with the Queensville roundabout ? Are they going to landscape it and plant bushes, flowers and a ’sponsored by’ sign ?
    Or is it a more prosaic reason - a convenient junction for some underground pipework ?

    It's either pipework or cabling, can't say I notice much. Just another PITA to negotiate.

    Gas works from what I’ve heard.

    PITA from everyone else’s perspective.

    I came across these last week when coming out of Queens retail park.
    Nearside going towards town centre (is that center or centre) the lane was blocked for no reason that I could see & in my younger days would have parked and removed to obstruction.

    It's a common occurrence - these were on Eccleshall Road a while back, the only obstructions in the road were the lights, he signs and the cones.

    Similar set-up on Sandon Road last week, with three-way lights for added pointless obstruction.

    There was a pointless set-up left over a Bank Holiday weekend at the Prison a few years ago - somebody moved it all into the lay-by outside Stafford Tyres.

    It’s the government’s “Cone out to Pullout” scheme.

    Somehow still less euphemisms that the original.
