Motorists are reporting delays of up to an hour leaving Preston city centre car parks – and the human traffic lights have returned.Advertisement
Louise Hogg said it took an hour to get out of the St George’s Shopping Centre car park and into Lune Street.
Shortly after 2.30pm on Saturday the human traffic lights returned to the city’s streets to try and ease the gridlock.
The congestion comes a week after Lancashire County Council unveiled its eight point plan for solving the clogged up city centre.
But it ruled out reinstalling traffic lights across the city centre, instead saying it would change the priority on certain roads in terms of the one ways to help shoppers escape quicker.
