    Really. Traffic lights needed intersections of Khyber Pass/ Middle Road & Burnt House Hill/ Middle Road. As well as Tee street bothe intersections. Middle & South Roads

    Bet there will be 20 accidents in the first 5 days.

    Please get your act together and replace the amber pedestrian traffic lights with red pedestrian lights.

    So they put two sets of lights within a couple hundred feet of each other? So you wait at one red light, then drive for ten seconds literally, and you are at another red light. Wow, what a great idea.

      Exactly!

      This is a rear-ender waiting to happen. There needs to be some kind of signage or another light nearer to the Paget lights to warn people coming up round the corner to start slowing down or if it’s clear.

    If it is deemed necessary, than so let it be, we hope police officers will be on foot to encourage motorists to be aware of the introduction of these lights, and I stress encourage not ticket.
