READER LETTER: Traffic lights will only slow things down

I read with interest Councillor Kevin Greaves’ comments regarding the ‘improvements’ to the Millhouse roundabout ie: “the result will be a massive improvement for motorists and boost access to the town”.

I believe that he and the so-called NCC traffic commissioners are living in cloud cuckoo land. All of us thick lay people know that traffic lights do nothing to improve traffic flow at roundabouts, in fact they slow it down.

Roundabouts are the ideal way to regulate traffic flow until council traffic planning departments stick their oar in. Time will tell.
