Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4039971.

Traffic lights on the roundabout after coming off the M23 are unecessary and cause traffic to back up onto the motorway, which is always dangerous (cars staying on the motorway travelling at 70mph past cars stationary on the slip road. There is not enough traffic on the roundabout to warrant having these traffic lights in place
