Possible short cycling/detection fault

Reported via mobile in the Traffic lights (NH) category anonymously at 21:32, Friday 5 April 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5813942.

Hello, Coming off the M5 SB at J16 to Bradley Stoke, I am wondering if the detection system is operating correctly? For a few days now the intergreen for the stage exiting the motorway has been definitely longer than my usual experience. The stage time is about 10 seconds. Which to me suggests a detection fault.

The reason I say that is because a few days ago South Glos responded to an identical problem at Aztec West (the neighbouring roundabout) and found rodents had disabled the detection system. Thought it might be worth a check.

Thanks Owen Kendrick
