  • The temporary lights at the junction of Dalston Lane and Balls pond rd are a mess. For those on Balls pond rd the green light phase is lasting 2 minutes but for those on Dalston Lane it is only lasting 15 seconds. To make matters worse, they have closed the ‘turn right’ Lane on Dalston Lane going north bound, those turning right will block everyone behind them. This has been ongoing for a few days. After speaking to bus drivers, they are telling me that they are reporting these light issues but nothing is being done.
