  • Thank you for contacting Northamptonshire Highways. We are already aware of an issue with the signals at the London Road / Broadway Junction in Wellingborough. The detectors on Irthlingborough road have been damaged by electricity road works. We are arranging for these to be replaced as soon as possible as this requires the road to be closed to complete the repairs. We have made some adjustments to the timings to help improve things in the short term whilst the permanent repairs are carried out.
