Traffic lights changing too quickly and traffic queueing back onto motorway

For the past two weeks the traffic is queueing back onto the motorway from the slip road exit which is really dangerous. The traffic lights are only on green for 8 seconds. I get to the junction between 8.30am and 8.45am so I am unsure what it is like at other times.
