Traffic experiment performing 'as expected' outside The Brewery
MOTORISTS have been trying to get used to a temporary traffic experiment along St Margaret's Road in Cheltenham.
The majority of the traffic lights in the street next to The Brewery were switched off on Monday this week.
Gloucestershire Highways has been visiting every day since as part of a bigger evaluation to see if the lights should be turned off on a permanent permanently.
It is hoped the initiative will help ease congestion in the town and improve traffic flow in the area.

If it doesn't the existing light system is likely to be turned back on.
Chris Riley, local highways manager for Cheltenham said: "The trial was put in place on Monday and so far it appears to be performing as we expected.
"Now that pedestrians and motorists are becoming more settled with these arrangements we will begin monitoring the effectiveness of the trial over the next two weeks."
