A Peterborough City Council spokesman said: “The decision follows the delays that the traffic management contributed to in the city centre yesterday during off-peak hours.

“Instead we will ensure that traffic can flow in both directions along Bishop’s Road.”

Motorists yesterday faced “gridlock” with queues backing up along Bourges Boulevard, over the Queensgate roundabout and over Crescent Bridge.
