National Highways has given an update on the operation of traffic lights on the A540 at Two Mills, following several complaints and concerns from drivers.

The traffic lights are operated by National Highways, which is responsible for maintaining and improving England’s major roads and motorways.

According to Councillor Karen Shore, the Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment, Highways and Strategic Transport at Cheshire West and Chester Council, they had received several comments about the traffic signals at Two Mills on the A540.

Some concerns were raised on social media channels about the safety of the lights which control the intersection between the A540 and the A550 Welsh Road.

She said: “We’d previously received a number of comments regarding the operation of the traffic signals at Two Mills on the A540.

“We have kept in touch with colleagues at National Highways and they have now told us they have further investigated the operation of the signals and work is planned to help solve these issues.”

Robert Heywood, National Highways Route Manager, confirmed that investigations into the traffic lights had been completed, and a faulty controller switch had been replaced.

He said: “We have completed the investigations into the lights at Two Mills and the engineers established that a controller switch needed replacing and this has been done.

“We believe it is also prudent to install a heater unit in the controller box to eliminate any condensation in the unit, along with improved unit sealing.

“We expect this to be carried out early next financial year and we will of course continue to monitor the lights.”
