This is why the lights at Lidl were taking so long

Problem lights at a busy junction in Caister have been fixed.
Traffic had been building up at the Norwich Road junction close to Lidl and the parish church since resurfacing work was carried out, with motorists reporting long, frustrating waits, even in the dead of night with nothing else coming.
A Norfolk County Council spokesman confirmed there had been damage to underground loops during the resurfacing.
She said: “The phase of the lights is the same but what happened was that the resurfacing works have damaged some of the underground loops to the mechanism affecting the timings which were running at their maximum.”
She said the lights were scheduled to be fixed earlier this month but were put off due to bad weather.
The next available slot was November 19/20 when the work was carried out.
