The traffic lights at this road junction stays on red far to long causing gridlock along blackwall lane towards Woolwich road. Traffic from tunnel avenue cannot exit the road when the lights turn green.It took forty minutes to travel 400 metres ! Suspect the traffic lights could be out of sequence. I did feel intimidated by other drivers who were losing their tempers with the situation.regards.
