Light phasing

Reported via desktop in the Traffic lights (NH) category anonymously at 13:03, Sun 27 February 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3347642.

The waiting area at the island for vehicles heading onto the A5127 north or A5148 north is far too short as only allows for one HGV or two cars. More than that and vehicles are stranded blocking the access onto the A5 westbound. The phasing of the lights need changing or better still a total redesign of this island to improve matters (unlike the previous redesign which just made it worse). There needs to be a minimum of three lanes heading north between the two sections of the dumbbell - or better still make this a grade separated junction as it was intended to be even before the M6 toll.
