ROADWORKS on Ipswich Road might be causing problems for commuters but traffic is not new in Colchester.

These images from our archives show how queues and alterations to road lay-outs have long been an issue for drivers and pedestrians.

North Hill, East Hill and Colchester High Street as well as queues on busy bank holidays outside Colchester Zoo on Maldon Road are all included in the images which date back to the early 1990s.

Greenstead roundabout, known to many as the magic roundabout for its series of smaller features scattered around the central one, is also seen in its early days.

It might be 30 years ago but traffic seems to be an issue which is not going anywhere fast.
