Lack of co-operation

The ongoing Tesco roadworks means a few diversions; the current one being that all Mitton-side traffic is being diverted into Vale Road. Coming from that direction gives them priority into lanes two and three; the town-side traffic has priority only in lane one. By itself this can cause some delay as the diverted will be trying to switch from lane two to lane one and some of the lane one traffic will be trying to switch to lane 3 to reach Gilgal.

Then the builders on Vale Road shut-down lane one; then lane two. So all the traffic from Mitton-side was funnelled down their prioritised lane three; and all the traffic from town had to attempt to merge with them.
