The traffic lights stay at red for far too long at Spittals for traffic travelling across to A141 even though no traffic is coming round the roundabout leading to huge queues.

  • Dear Sir/Madam

    Thank you for contacting us via Fix My Street regarding the traffic signals at Spittals Interchange. I appreciate you taking the time to report this.

    We found and repaired a fault with the controller that runs the traffic signals at the junction. We attended site on 9 August and found no issues or fault with signals settings or any indication of fault with sequencing. We need to allow for the technology to adapt to the changes of flow of traffic, however, we will continue to monitor the situation.

    Thank you again for contacting us, I hope you find my response reassuring.

    Kind regards

    Highways England
