The whole of the Niddrie Crossroads, Wisp, Millerhill and Danderhall areas are a mass of these temporary traffic lights and there appears to be no-one in charge of trying to help the poor commuters who have to negotiate their way around these obstacles.

Surely the council should be insisting that house builders and roadwork gangs, should ensure that road disruption be kept to a minimum, thereby saving these councils, thousands of pounds in unnecessary TTROs.
