In the peek hours of morning I drop my daughter off at Lancing collage and it takes me more the 20 min to join back to A27 from Coombes road. The green light is so short and it lets only 4 to 5 cars at the time! This morning I was on that traffic light from 8.10 to 8.39! It used to work fine and I am not sure what’s changed but at the moment it’s not working! Thank you for your help.
