Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3101239.

Light sequence has changed and causing 2 mile tailback on inside lane on southbound A12 cars are stopping in lane 2 to try and join sliproad I saw a car stop this morning to try and push in Artic managed to stop behind them God only knows how he avoided going into the back of it.

  • This is still not fixed and still 2 mile tailbacks. Is this going to be sorted? The light sequence needs to be changed back to what it was. Currently it only lets 3 cars through at one time and changes back to red too quickly. Its causing dangerous incidents on the A12 and needs to be looked at immediately!!!

  • Currently sat in the light sequence which hasn’t allowed anything to leave the a12 for six minutes (and counting!). Taken me 20 minutes to do a mile.
