The issue reported many times before keeps happening, again this morning. Having experienced it several times, I've noticed it usually happens when: (i) the vehicles are queing up in a single lane (not in 2 lanes, one turning left, one right) (2) the first vehicle in the queue is further away than usual from the traffic light. I've actually managed to get the light working by stopping my car halfway through the box reserved to cyclists. It seems therefore that the issue is with the sensor at the top of the traffic light failing to detect the vehicles, in an area which is slightly curved.
Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. It is much appreciated. Your report has been investigated and we can confirm that there is a fault with these traffic lights. We have therefore referred this to our contractors and as it is classed as an emergency it will be fixed or made safe within 24 hours.
