Letter: Traffic lights will be monitored

We’re sorry some people experienced problems on Park Road in Pontefract last weekend.

We had to put the traffic lights up to make sure they were working before the new road opened – as this is standard practice.

But the timings on the new traffic lights had not been set at the right level.

This was rectified as soon as possible and we will continue to monitor all the traffic lights in that area to make sure that traffic can flow as freely and safely as possible.
