The works started today (Monday) outside Peterborough City Hospital, causing long queues and disruption, with bus services being hit and ambulances getting caught in traffic jams.

The works are being carried out by Amey on behalf of Peterborough City Council.

Temporary four way traffic lights were installed today - but after the disruption was reported, the lights were replaced with a manual system to keep traffic running.
