Traffic light sequence

Reported via mobile in the Traffic lights (NH) category anonymously at 08:42, Tue 7 March 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4288459.

Since the traffic light sequence changed a few weeks ago the problems caused by the roundabout being blocked at most exits and the congestion every morning and evening is ridiculous. I understand the reason may have been to slow traffic down in the roundabout but all it’s fine is make people more stupid. The traffic lights were told to us local residents as supposedly helping with flow of traffic and congestion and most mornings it’s completely congested and we aren’t able to get on or off the roundabout because of the new traffic light sequence. The congestion up fleetwood road in carleton is worse than it’s ever been and some days it’s so bad it’s up to the crossroads junction with poulton road and Bispham road. N days like today when it’s so bad my daughter often ends up late for school. For years I’ve done this journey and never had the issues I have now. The roundabout needs looking at and whether the light sequences change back to when it actually functioned or crosshatched boxes out in the roundabout to stop all exits being blocked even when the lights are on Green! The disruption caused seems to only be through poor choices and lack of thought for locals.
