Timing of traffic lights at Sussex Pad, Coombes Road and A27

Reported via mobile in the Traffic lights category anonymously at 21:24, Wednesday 18 November 2020

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

The lights at this junction have become severely out of sync in the morning and afternoon/evening rush hour times , meaning that the right turn from A27 into Coombes Road is green for so short a time with extremely long waits in between that the queues are going back out of the slip lane. Then the green light coming out of Coombes road to A27 is so short that almost no cars can exit this road and waiting is over 20 minutes to get out onto A27
