Traffic lights do not allow traffic out of the retail park

The traffic lights at the four way have been dangerously reprogrammed. They do not let traffic out of the retail park. I witnessed the traffic on the Daltongate side given at least four cycles out onto the A590 whilst the traffic on the retail park was not allowed out. In the end the vehicles in the retail park ignored the traffic lights and made their way onto the main road. This was at 22:00, when the road was very quiet. I have been told that earlier in the day it was taking vehicles more than half an hour to get onto the main road
