There is access to various big switches and boxes. I assume this could mean that anyone can turn off the traffic lights or throw liquids into the controls. Warning labels inside talk of 450 volts!!! The traffic signal control box indicated, which is near the Wellingborough station car park barriers, has been open for days. There is a padlock on the door, but the door presumably wasn't latched when it was closed. Someone has pushed a traffic cone against the door to try and hold it closed.
