Congratulations to the clever clogs who thought the junction at the site of the Tesco redevelopment in Lichfield didn’t need temporary traffic lights.
Contractors have been working to remove the small traffic island in recent weeks ready for a new traffic light controlled junction.
But by not putting temporary traffic-control measures in place at the weekend, they managed to produce a scene of chaos as cars pulled out from all directions without knowing who had right of way.
Just wandering past the junction there were more than a few close shaves to be seen and it’s difficult to comprehend just why nothing was done to ensure the safety of drivers and pedestrians during a busy weekend in Lichfield.
But given the lack of thought that’s clearly gone into the approval of such a superstore in such a busy part of the city, is it surprising that common sense was lacking over the weekend?
