Unnecessary red lights

Reported via mobile in the Traffic lights (NH) category anonymously at 10:27, Mon 28 August 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4933103.

Lights are on red despite no traffic exiting the border facility. Surely priority should be given to road traffic which is being stopped unnecessarily. Cars are now jumping the red lights because there is no reason for them to stop and wait. It is impossible to pass this junction without the light being red.
