Traffic lights not on during rush hour at bottom of slip road, A1(M), Jct 6

The part time traffic lights have not been turned back on despite the traffic returning back to near usual since Covid. Every day this causes queues on the slip road, sometimes trailing back onto the A1(M), this is an accident waiting to happen. The junction at the bottom of the slip road is also not the best for visibility due to the angle, if you factor in the fast moving traffic and the amount of near misses that occur, the lights working would make this so much safer.
