FEARS of traffic chaos in Burton have been realised as rolling road closures have gridlocked the town.
Work by Staffordshire County Council to improve the road surface in Bridge Street and Wetmore Road has been up and running since April 2.
However, 17 days of road closures have officially begun causing traffic to grind to a halt across the town.
Drivers are facing long delays along Derby Road and Horninglow Road as the town's infrastructure struggles to cope with diverted traffic.
