Four-way traffic lights are currently in place on St Andrews at the junction with Exchange Street as UK Power Networks carry out emergency works.

There were long queues on Barn Road, Barrack Street and Westwick Street this morning and a number of people expressed their frustration at the delays on social media.

John Killett tweeted: “Traffic now blocking Barn Road and city gridlocked back to Barrack street #chaos.”

And Jo Clarke said: “I parked in Barn Road carpark, eventually, and in the time it took me to walk to Duke Street, the queue had barely moved.”

Work is expected to continue until the end of the week

A spokesperson for UK Power Networks added: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused while this vital work takes place.”
