Ipswich: Traffic lights fail at busy junctions
MOTORISTS in Ipswich are being urged to take extra care today after a series of traffic light failures in the town.
The first affected the signals in both directions at the Copdock interchange this morning at around 7.20am.
There were also problems at the traffic lights in nearby Scrivener Drive in Pinebrook.
They failed in both directions and drivers were advised to take care at the junction.
A spokesman for Suffolk County Council said the equipment is working but there has been a power cut in the area which is believed to have affected the traffic lights.
