These lights are on one of the major exit roads from blackpool/Poulton. Traffic is backed up all day due to the lights only letting 4 or 5 cars through at a time. Other cars overtaking the tailback and driving on wrong side of the road into oncoming traffic so they can turn right at the lights

  • These lights still only let half a dozen cars through on green from poulton industrial side, not from Fleetwood. This is a major safety issue as people are racing up the centre of the road into oncoming traffic and then cutting hgv’s up etc. This has been witnessed by police officers to and has been passed to the local traffic enforcement team.

  • We appreciate your concerns and are grateful for you taking the time to report your observations. Our team delivering the A585 Windy Harbour to Skippool bypass scheme became aware of an issue recently with the traffic light timings. Failed sensors buried in the carriageway of the adjacent local authority road network, which are linked to our traffic lights here, were identified as the cause of the issue.

    We replaced the failed sensors in late September, but a subsequent assessment earlier this month revealed additional failed sensors (also on the local road network) linked to the traffic lights at the crossroads. The failed sensors were replaced overnight on 26 October and the traffic lights are now working as per their design. We plan to assess the suitability of the current timings in the near future and to adjust them where appropriate to suit am and pm peak period traffic flows.

    State changed to: Closed
