Frustrated shoppers have shared how it took them up to 20 minutes to exit a supermarket car park.

Aldi on the Farnham Road opened on Thursday, October 12, after months of planning.

Upon the original opening announcement, residents raised concerns about there only being 100 parking spaces shared between Aldi, Pets At Home and Poundland.

Coinciding with the launch of the supermarket, temporary traffic lights are currently placed on the Edinburgh Avenue.

After visiting the new store Julie Harris said: “Finding car parking space was hard, then 20 minutes to get out of the car park. Not for me and it will stop me using the other two shops unless things improve."

The works, by Slough Borough Council, have closed a lane since September 11.

Temporary traffic lights are estimated to be in place until October 29.

An Aldi spokesperson said: “We are aware of the issues caused by the temporary traffic lights.

"With lots of interest surrounding the new store opening, we have done everything in our power to ease traffic, including using traffic marshals.

"The temporary traffic lights outside the Aldi site is a Slough Highways project and not related to the Aldi store. “
