Timing of lights
Reported via desktop in the Traffic lights category anonymously at 10:40, Saturday 12 June 2021
Sent to Highways England less than a minute later
The extremely short interval between the lights turning to red at any point on the roundabout and the next junction turning green causes a problem this is exacerbated by drivers coming through the lights on red in combination with cars rapidly coming through the next entry point on or just before their light have turned green. This makes coming out of the junctions onto the roundabout that are not under traffic light control extremely difficult causing excessive queues. This would be significantly reduced if there ware a delay (or a bigger one if there already is one) between the lights changing and the installation of red light cameras to reduce dangerous driving habits that appear to be ingrained in many drivers.
Thank you for contacting Highways England concerning traffic timings in this area. We shall look into this issue and aim to provide a response by 25/06/21.
