The traffic problems in Aylesbury this morning have caused a lot of frustration for drivers across the town.

Buses have been  stuck or extremely delayed getting out of Aylesbury to places like Wycombe.

Lots of drivers have taken to social media to vent their frustrations.

Here's a selection from you all this morning:

Finding an alternative...

No-one but Bucks CC could design such a perfect mess.The burst water pipe and road repairs are only a tiny extra dimension on a perfectly made disastrous traffic system which people have to endure every day.However,the arrogant of the LA plods convincing themselves of their own brilliance.Aylesbury is fast becoming a no go area and there are huge implications for local businesses.What a shambles...I cannot wait till the next local election!

Great stuff. Let's just put in a few more hundred or thousands of homes and bring the whole place to a shuddering halt. Why can't AVDC see that until we have roads fit for purpose (if ever) building more and more houses in or around Aylesbury (Aston Clinton / Wendover / Weston Turville / Buckland, etc, etc) is a complete madness. Next it will a congestion charge. Of course roads are not the only problem. We don't have enough doctors or school places either but let's just stick to the roads for now.

The real clowns are the ones who thought it would be a good idea to put in temporary traffic lights over the rush hour. I couldn't get my daughter to school this morning.
