Chester Rd has reverted into a trunk road

postscript: do it better ....

Big increase in traffic yesterday and this morning. Locals on Facebook say there are 4 way traffic lights on Penymynydd roundabout. duh!

I estimate we're seeing over 20 cars a minute and its not even a school day which vastly increases traffic.

How long are the traffic lights at Penymynydd roundabout going to be there?
Will vehicle users develop bad habits and use the village as a short cut in future?

Traffic Levels - Red stuff means stop I think. You can see the orange levels on Chester Rd.
Green marker is Lisa on the A55 at 9.15am not the time as marked on screen shot.

postscript: Where does traffic data come from? Been scratching my head over this. Some of it comes from your mobile.

When you choose to enable Google Maps with My Location, your phone sends anonymous bits of data back to Google describing how fast you're moving. When we combine your speed with the speed of other phones on the road, across thousands of phones moving around a city at any given time, we can get a pretty good picture of live traffic conditions. We continuously combine this data and send it back to you for free in the Google Maps traffic layers. It takes almost zero effort on your part — just turn on Google Maps for mobile before starting your car — and the more people that participate, the better the resulting traffic reports get for everybody.
