Cambridgeshire County Council provides their residents with household recycling centres. Due to COVID-19, all of the recycling centres were temporarily closed whilst safety measures were put in place. When the site reopened, the council had to deal with high levels of demand. As a result of this increased traffic, they had to implement traffic management measures to maintain traffic flow. However, this measure was expensive and site users experienced long wait times. This had a knock-on effect and caused disruption to traffic on neighbouring roads.
