  • Our Traffic signal maintenance contractor visited site on Monday 13th at 11:30 and has rectified the problem. The engineer found a loose cable that was causing the signals to change as if someone kept pressing the button. The Engineer has subsequently re attended site today 15th January @ 12:00 following further complaints of the crossing changing on its own. The engineer could find no fault and the signals were found to be operating correctly. Should the problem re occur this can be reported by telephone for immediate attention. Please call 0300 126 1000 between 8:00am and 6:00pm Monday to Friday or 01604 651 074 outside of these hours.
