TEMPORARY traffic lights are causing mayhem on a road in Bitterne.

Temporary lights on Bursledon Road have been stuck on red for a while.

A motorist who got caught up in the delays earlier this afternoon said the congestion between Hinkler Road and Kathleen Road is "maniac".

The temporary lights have been put in place following a crash at the junction at the end of last month.

Southampton City Council has been contacted for more information.
