Traffic lights a good signal

Expect to see traffic lights on the B4035 near the junction with Pound Lane for a couple of weeks from15 January. As you fume at the delay to your journey, keep in mind the happy thought that the works are in aid of bringing a power supply to the site of the new mobile phone mast.

The new mast will bring 4G mobile phone coverage to users of the Vodafone and O2 networks. The two other main networks, EE and Three, are not involved at present but could join in later. Many people are customers of virtual network operators that run off the main networks. For example, O2 supports giffgaff, Sky and Tesco, so customers of these operators will benefit from the new mast. Consult the full list on Wikipedia if you are in doubt about your operator.
