Temporary traffic lights causing hold-ups

The temporary traffic lights at the Midmill Business Park and Kemnay junctions in Kintore are causing considerable problems, particularly at rush hours.
At peak times after 5pm, the tailback for the traffic lights is backing up all the way back to the A96 – where standing traffic queuing on the dual carriageway and roundabout is an obvious safety hazard.
One Kintore resident contacted us to question if the lights are set up to take traffic flow into account as the traffic from the A96 is held up and backing up onto the main road, while there is no apparent traffic coming out of the town.
Inevitably this has led to questions about the proposed permanent traffic lights to control the business park and Kemnay road junctions
. Is this the right solution, rather than the realigned roundabout that had been considered?
