I wrote to you on Wednesday to say that, subject to testing of lights, the junction’s new traffic lights would be fully operational at some point today. However, we are not satisfied with a power supply issue that has been identified during testing and therefore we will not ‘commission’ the traffic lights until this is satisfactorily resolved. You may see engineers working throughout this evening and during the weekend to rectify the issue.
As an interim solution, so that the junction is operating fully as planned, engineers have now set up temporary lights at the Foot of the Walk junction.
I hope to update you further on Monday.
