Temporary traffic signal timing issue

Reported via mobile in the Traffic lights category anonymously at 22:34, Sunday 1 August 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

Since the temporary traffic lights on the A49 for the new junction into the Bloor Homes development have switched sides the signal timing has changed and it is causing massive queues north and southbound on the A49. Southbound it queues all the way back to the junction of Church Road at Lower Lyde even on a Sunday. Traffic is now taking a short cut on Church Road which is single track and it is so busy it is destroying the verges and making it very difficult to access our property on the lane. There have already been two accidents. In the first phase before the works switched sides the timing was ok and the queues not too bad. The signal timings need to be corrected and remedial works to repair Church Road by Bloor Homes undertaken.
