Dangerous timing of Lights A27 and Coombes Road

Reported via desktop in the Traffic lights category anonymously at 10:45, Monday 16 November 2020

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

For a week the lights have been only been allowing 2 cars to pass through on green from Coombes road to A27. Such a short sequence that cars are going through lights as they turn red and risking collision with cars on A27 whose lights have changed. Huge queues in the morning. Taking over half an hour to clear on set of lights.
