11:54am Monday 29th October 2012 in News
THERE appears to be more trouble for motorists on London Road this morning, following last week's reports of traffic light glitches.
Officials have said sorry to drivers after a difficult to fix problem spilled over into the start of this week.
Long travel times up along the road have been reported this morning after engineers last week said a computer error was causing the failure of the lights by the Wycombe Marsh retail park.
The signals have been malfunctioning for about two weeks and workman said last week they were baffled as to how to correct the problem.

Rosemary Bryant, spokesman for Transport for Bucks, said:
"On Thursday last week they were put to their most basic setting, known as fixed time, where each approach is given a set amount of green time in turn irrespective of the amount of traffic in the area as this is the only way to test that we have a stable system.
"Since this was done the lights have worked correctly so we now know the system is stable.
"From today we will start to feed in more complex algorithms that will proportion the amount of green time to the traffic flows until we get back to fully operational.
"We do apologies for any inconvenience caused to motorists whilst these lights have been faulty."
