A TEMPORARY four way traffic light system is causing large queues on Newtown Road in Worcester this morning.

The traffic lights are thought to have been set up to allow essential water works to be carried out on a property nearby.

Expect delays to your journey if you are heading that way today.

Severn Trent workers closed the busy road last week to do the work but were told by Highways to leave as they had not got permission.

A spokesman for Severn Trent Water said at the time: “It looks as though one of our teams made a mistake about the location for the work. We’d like to apologise to anyone who was affected by the team as they started to set up.”
