  • The ongoing rain and mud on the road are making this section of the temporary traffic lights very dangerous. The blind turn right up Brampton Lane is so congested that an accident is very high risk.

  • The mud may have been fixed but it is just as bad again now. When the frosts set in it will be horrendous. The other problem is the lighting especially around the entrance to the site where traffic has to wind from one side of the road to the other, where also th road changes levels. At busy times in the dark it is an accident risk. Shouldn't the road have been fixed before building started, after all the planting of trees seems to be high on the list!

  • Sections of the road in the traffic lights are being opened with no proper surface, potholes and raised drain making it difficult to drive through when you finally get there after sitting in long ques of traffic everyday. Road continuously covered in mud. Dangerous turning at Brampton lane as vision is blocked by the ques of traffic. I am surprised there has not been serious accidents here and cars badly damaged. The road has be partially closed for months and very rarely anyone working near the road. Building work should not have been allowed on both sides of the road at the same time

  • This section of road is now DANGEROUS. The temporary surface is failing apart, its frequently covered in standing water and mud - The mud making it incredibly dangerous.

    These road works are now multiple weeks over due their original completion date and are a risk to all users using this section of the A5199. Why are the developers being allowed to continue work on the site without the access being completed and hard standing areas created for the traffic parking at the site.

  • Still nothing been done about any of the issues above nearly 7 weeks after the 1st concern was raised. In fact the mud and lay out of roadworks is worse now than it's ever been. Will it take a serious accident for something to be done?
