Traffic delays caused by computer system problems

Warrington Guardian: Traffic delays caused by computer system problems Traffic delays caused by computer system problems

MOTORISTS faced long delays across the town centre this morning after a computer problem caused traffic light problems in the town centre.

Some drivers complained of taking 30 minutes to travel along Academy Way.

Mersey Street and Wilson Patten Street were also gridlocked.

The problem was caused after the servers on trafflic lights on Bridge Foot went down - sending all lights on to a default setting.

Technicians hope to have the system back up and running this morning.

The lights at the cemetery were out of kilter also. Took ages to get round from Padgate lane onto Manchester Rd.

That's not really news. This is a daily occurence in Warrington, the worst town in the North West for traffic problems.
