Traffic lights for A614 Rufford Road junction

Traffic lights are to be installed at a Nottinghamshire bottleneck where there have been several accidents.

Nottinghamshire County Council is funding the lights at the Rufford Road junction of the A614 near the Rose Cottage pub.

Sherwood MP Mark Spencer said the lights were "long overdue" as there had been 11 accidents there over a five-year period.

He said drivers felt pressured to take risks when queues built up.

"On a Monday and a Friday when Center Parcs is turning out, the queues can be quite large," said Mr Spencer.

"If you find yourself at the front of the queue, the pressure to take a risk on to the busy A614 is quite high and in the past, some people have taken risks they really shouldn't have done."
