Traffic light troubles

Traffic lights at the London Road level crossing between Priory Road and Mallards Way were stuck on red yesterday, but the barriers were still working.

Engineers reset the barriers after they had fallen which Network Rail says caused the lights to stop working temporarily.

Network Rail spokeswoman Anne-Marie Batson said as part of plans to upgrade the tracks between Bicester Town and Oxford for the East-West rail project, the level crossing is closed to trains.

She said: “Engineers were on site testing the crossing barriers and it is likely that the lights were activated as part of this test.”

She said the problem had been fixed.

Shame they can't fix the appalling level crossing which is horrendous since it was dug up and put back down again. Coming along the London Road into Bicester, you seriously have to hold on to your seat even at 25mph as the road surface is so uneven now. Hoefully the contractors will take it up and redo it properly soon.

It's uncomfortable at 25 mph - so do 20 mph and stop complaining.
