The traffic lights are facing the wrong direction from green lane and a20 at fiveways. Oh yeah…. again. This was fixed last month but is broken again. I suggest fixing the problem properly this time to ensure this doesn’t happen once more! Five ways is a very busy junction and it’s extremely dangerous. Also a suggestion, once you have passed the a20 direction traffic lights (Premier Inn side) you are unable to see whether it’s green or red. I think another traffic light is needed the other side to make sure cars turn only when safe to do so and without wasting time.
Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. It is much appreciated. This has now been investigated and we can confirm that there is a fault with these traffic lights.
