Traffic light on red causing huge tailback

Reported via mobile in the Stuck on red category anonymously at 18:00, Sun 6 March 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3366728.

Traffic light outside church cycles to green then immediately back to red and let’s only 2 cars through. This is a pedestrian crossing light that is usually on green full time until the button is pressed. It is causing huge tailbacks all the way back to Lewisham gateway and all tributary roads. Drivers are going through on red and a pedestrian will be killed shortly if this isn’t fixed if not from being run down then from the pollution of all the idling cars in the jam. This has been going on all weekend at least.
