Roadworks near the Bond End roundabout in Knaresborough have caused delays all day, with some commuters stuck in traffic for more than 15 minutes.
Temporary lights are in place at the bottom of the high street, near Bond End, due to telecoms works.
These lights have caused slow traffic flow along Ripley Road and Boroughbridge Road throughout the day heading towards the town’s high street.
The congestion even forced some drivers, coming from Ripley, to turn around rather than continue to sit and wait.
This afternoon’s rush hour is set to be no different, with similar levels of traffic and delays expected.
