Traffic Light Sequence Is A Joke on Tinsley Roundabout, Sheffield

Reported via mobile in the Traffic lights (NH) category anonymously at 19:36, Thu 14 July 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3677383.

The traffic light sequence at the moment is an absolute joke. It is currently takes up to 2 hours to get through the roundabout which should take 2 minutes! One side of the viaduct is closed for 11 weeks due to had repairs, so this needs to be taken into account with the sequence to help the traffic flow. It's not even just rush hour, it is literally all day. It can't be kept like this for the full 11 weeks! It it has been like this for months as well, so not just an issue due to the lan closures. Please sort it out!

    We’re sorry to hear of the issues you experienced. The traffic management on the M1 Junction 34 has been installed to enable Cadent gas to undertake urgent inspections of two main gas pipelines running under Tinsley Viaduct. To enable safe access for the inspections the A631 northbound has to be closed and traffic diverted north using the middle lane or service road. The signal timings at Junction 34 have been adjusted to reflect the new temporary layout and help smooth the flow of traffic.
