Traffic light failure was due to high winds
High winds damaged a set of traffic lights at a busy Norwich junction, it has emerged.
The traffic signals failed at 10.16pm last night where Martineau Lane joins the A146 Trowse bypass.
This was due to high winds damaging a signal head, which subsequently caused the signals to trip out.
Engineers arrived on site at 8am and the signals were back on and working at 8.53am, however workers have remained on site to replace the damaged signal head.
While the lights were not working, police were on scene helping to direct the traffic and keep it moving.
