  • Hello. For info, this seems to be a repeating fault. I have raised the same issue in 2016 and 2018. The light gets stuck on red for a very long time and traffic backs up. This results in drivers sounding their horns which is a considerable noise nuisance; and some vehicles are driving out of the junction while the light is on red. This is clearly very dangerous and will inevitably result in a collission before long. I have even seen HGVs go through this junction on a red light.
