Traffic lights not set properly

Reported via desktop in the General Fault category anonymously at 10:19, Thursday 25 November 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3142908.

When I am at Elm Road and I am waiting to turn right into Sidcup High Street and the light turns red (which stops the traffic opposite me) as I am turning into the High Street the green man is already bleeping and people are crossing the road opposite Nat West Bank. These lights need to be adjusted to wait so that cars can turn before the green man light and sound comes on. If there was a blind person they would be run over! Someone will be killed there soon. Thank you.
