Change of phase in the night

Reported via mobile in the General Fault category anonymously at 23:54, Friday 13 August 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2934571.

For some reason when we it become the night time the temporary traffic lights fase at the old street round about change. When the lights for those on City road (south side) go red, the lights for traffic on old street (west side) go green and so do the ones for those who want to turn left onto city road (north side) or right onto old street (east side). When the light to turn left onto city road (ns) or old street (es) go red, the lights for traffic coming from old street (ws) remain on green so this traffic end up blocking the road. The light then goes green for traffic coming from city road (ss), but driver have to either choose between blocking the road for traffic trying to turn right onto old street (ws) or not going at all which means they will hold up traffic behind. This has been happening for many months now. Whenever I am drinking the route 76 or 214, I complain to the NMCC about this but nothing has yet to be done. To loose upto 10 minutes at the old street round about at 1:30am is ridiculous.
