Drivers heading from Saltney to Broughton were caught up in long delays on Monday due to temporary traffic lights failing.


At one point it was taking over 20 minutes to travel a mile towards Broughton.

Traffic began to flow at around 1pm.

A spokesman for Flintshire County Council told us:

“Scottish Power have been working over the weekend to repair a damaged cable under an emergency notice. We were notified by a member of public that the temporary traffic signals were not working and causing congestion. The Utility were informed and the traffic management has since been removed.”

On Twitter: @Michellecarp86 said: “Avoid saltney /Broughton main road . Traffic lights seem to be permanently be on red both way today” ?
While @IanAHHH tweeted; “Its chaos here atm! Traffic from Saltney into broughton not moving :/
