Phasing has changed causing chaos AT PEAK TIMES.

Reported via desktop in the Traffic lights (NH) category anonymously at 16:03, Thu 9 February 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4218406.

Phasing has changed and despite many other recent reports of this that are all closed "no fault found" there are dangerous build ups of queues around the roundabout blocking traffic that should be moving on green. Only a matter of time before there is a serious accident. Suggest next time you test you attend between 4:30 and 5:30. Surely the old settings are documented and can just be changed back?? Also, the lights on the North side controlling traffic entering southbound from Fleetwood Road South are out of line making them difficult to see from both directions they are supposed to be controlling. This has happened regularly over the last two years.

  • Thank you for contacting National Highways,

    We haven't made any changes to the settings on these signals. Whilst our initial tests showed no faults we're continuing to investigate the sequencing issue. We're aware of the traffic lights facing the wrong direction and we've raised a job to rectify this.
