TIMPERLEY commuters faced lengthy delays on Park Road this morning.

Drivers travelling along Park Road, who were heading onto the A56, were stuck in a mile-long traffic jam that went back to Constables newsagents.

A problem with the timing of the traffic lights at the Park Road/A56 junction caused the hold-up.

A spokesperson for Transport for Greater Manchester said: “There was a communication fault with the traffic signalling at the junction of Park Road and the A56, which has now been corrected.

“Once we identified the problem late last week, a repair was made on Monday morning.

“Traffic will have been affected during the previous week – and may have been heavier on Sunday due to the partial M60 closure – but the signalling is now working again and will be closely monitored.”
