Timings wrong - second traffic light on balham high road in direction of Balham and light from Ritherdon to BHRd not green long enoughn

Reported in the Stuck on red category anonymously at 10:07, Thu 24 September 2020

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2309594.

By Ritherdon Road, timings wrong - second traffic light on Balham High Road in direction of Balham - is on red, so traffic coming along Balham High Road stop on the junction, and this blocks traffic from Ritherdon Road trying to turn right onto Balham High Road (even though Balham High Road is clear) Also the lights change too quickly after about 8:20 am for traffic from Ritherdon Road trying to turn right onto Balham High road. The problem can start if you get 2 buses stopping on BHRd direction Balham. They block road and cause dangerous chaos. Cars go through on green but are stuck in the junction on BHrd by Ritherdon. Widened cycle lane does not work.
