  • This is causing a dangerous taiback on the M5 and will cause an acident. IT NEEDS SORTING ASAP

  • I have just queued for over 25 minutes from 0.75 miles away from J12 (getting off from the South) and have witnessed many cars dangerously slowing to a stop in the first lane with HGV's bearing down on them (th queue to get off being on the hard shoulder).

    This junction is a fatality waiting to happen at the best of times in rush hour, but whoever changed the light timings needs sacking. Green for about 5 seconds. Uttelry ridiculous. Please resolve before something serious happens!

  • Please look into this, this is putting so many road users at risk. Lights only green for a few seconds meaning massive tailbacks on the hard shoulder.

  • Thank you for making your report. We're aware of this issue. The traffic lights were damaged causing issues with the syncing. We've been out and changed the lights to a fixed timer rather than the above ground radar detection until a repair can be carried out.

    Kind regards
