Junction often blocked by crossing traffic

Due to the temporary traffic lights for the new junction, the position marked on the map is often blocked by traffic leaving the M6 northbound and turning right onto the A556. This causes traffic on the roundabout to be blocked, and during rush hour this blocks traffic further back around the roundabout, where the southbound M6 exit joins. Yellow hatched markings, or at least signs telling people to keep the junction clear would significantly improve traffic flow during peak hours.

  • This would also be useful on the corresponding intersection between the M6 southbound exit and the roundabout.

  • Can you reinstate the yellow boxes at this junction which have been removed for roadworks. They make a huge difference to traffic flow and the current blockages are dangerous as vehicles become stranded as the lights change. Appreciate the roadworks are ongoing so they will only be temporary but this junction currently causes misery for thousands of commuters every day and tails back onto the M6 so the yellow boxes should be urgently reinstated.
