The lights were stuck for over 5 minutes and it's not helped by it being part of a diversion.

  • The traffic lights were stuck today for over 5 minutes on red. I also had a similar issue on Tuesday 23rd June. Traffic had to go through the red light as congestion was backed up all along Balham station road.

  • This problem doesn't seem to have been resolved. The lights just got stuck for us (28/06/20 ~7:30pm) three rounds went by and ours still did not change so we had to go through the red light when it was safe to do so.
