This happened a few weeks ago (and I can see several previous reports) but it happened again tonight. Despite multiple vehicles queuing to turn right the traffic light for turning right towards Crystal Palace remained stuck on red for two cycles. This resulted in me getting stuck in the box junction as we all moved forward on the expectation the light would go green as it was supposed to (I use this junction most days) and then it just didn't happen. The person behind me had moved forward too, so there was nowhere for me to go. I waited two cycles and then managed to switch lanes to go straight on, even though that was the wrong direction for me. I will now probably get a fine for being in the box junction, which is really frustrating.
