Traffic lights changing too quickly

I've noticed that recently the traffic lights at the top of the slip road have been changing really quickly. So much so that cars are queuing up on the motorway which is really dangerous especially during peak time (8:15-8:45am)

  • Arrived at the junction earlier this morning and the queue was the worst it's been - backed onto the motorway around the corner blocking one lane off.
