Timing issue of Traffic lights from A308M as joining M4 Jct 8/9

Reported via desktop in the Traffic lights (NH) category anonymously at 14:31, Wed 21 June 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4700245.

I have previously contacted yourselves as has may other people about the timing issue of the traffic lights from A308M joining M4 Jct 8/9, they are letting through four cars sometimes less on this stretch and this is causing long tail backs down the A308M making journeys into work a nightmare, I know the traffic lights should be on for at least 8 secs but this isn't the case and I have dash cam footage if required showing how bad it is, then you sit there watching at least 20/30 cars getting through on the other traffic lights on the roundabout, this is an ongoing problem and has been repeatedly reported, it gets sorted for a few weeks and then resorts back
