Roadworks near a High Wycombe school have been branded a “nightmare” by frustrated drivers who have spent hours stuck in queues. 

For more than two months there have been three-way temporary traffic lights in place on Daws Hill Lane, opposite the new Taylor Wimpey Pine Trees housing development. 

According to the Bucks County Council website, they are responsible for closing the road, but the roadworks are being carried out by developers Taylor Wimpey. 

The works started on September 18 and are due to finish on December 22. 

A frustrated driver, who contacted the Bucks Free Press after spending almost an hour travelling from Cressex, said drivers are getting fed up of the queues - especially at school times when St Michael’s School pupils get picked up. 

He said: “The roadworks have been here for weeks and weeks but it doesn’t even look like they are doing anything. 

“There never seems to be anyone here yet cars are having to wait in the queue for ages.

“Trying to get through them in the evenings after work is just a complete nightmare and at school times. It is ridiculous.” 

Another driver took to social media to complain that it took more than 40 minutes to get from before the school through the lights.
