This photo was taken on Monday on the Totnes Rd about 200 metres before the lights at Tweenaway Cross. Big queue of traffic suggesting that the millions spent on improving the traffic flow at this world famous junction had been wasted. That was what I was going to write when I took the photo. However I then heard there had been an accident on the ring road and the road was closed in the direction of Brixham and traffic was backed up to the junction so the millions weren't wasted after all.
Then to night at 5 pm I came out of Paignton heading up the Totnes road and came to a stop at the junction of Hayes Rd which must be 300 metres from the traffic lights. 10 minutes late I drove across the junction, coming from Totnes there were no cars waiting, from Kings Ash 3 or and the same from Brixham. Behind me there was a queue of traffic going back to Hayes Rd still.
Time for the council to either admit that the millions spent on the improvements to this junction could have been better spent buying everyone in the Bay a few pints as a consolation to not having a decent ring road or better still doing something to the timing of the lights. At the moment traffic coming out of Paignton seems to get about half the time the other 3 roads get which isn't fair.
