Filter traffic light allowing traffic to turn right into Main Road is not always filtering to green, at 66 Sevenoaks Way, Orpington BR5 3QD

Reported in the General Fault category anonymously at 13:10, Friday 14 February 2020

Sent to TfL 5 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS1998491.

The filter traffic light allowing traffic to turn right into Main Road is not always filtering to green. This often means that traffic waiting in the central reservation is having to turn right on a red light to avoid blocking the road for traffic turning right out of Main Rd onto Sevenoaks Way. There have been several occasions now where there has been increased risk of an accident occurring due to road users becoming confused and opposing lights changing to green whilst other motorists are still turning right into Main Road.
