Every 2years lights get stuck

Reported via desktop in the Stuck on red category anonymously at 16:45, Saturday 7 May 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3508622.

Brampton rd/bostall hill woolwich rd junction in abbey woods was stuck on red for 5mins , I approached and just missed the amber and was slightly too far over the stop line already so i was in the way of the bus turning, then I had to wait for 3 cycles and over 5mins , i gave up and started to move forward slowly over the first lane as there was no traffic at all going on woolwich rd, and next car was following me along , i tried turning around but it is not possible at the location is there is bollards keeping the cars trapped into place.and only when i started to cross the road did it turn green , so i reckon there must have been camera on my car and they were watching to see how i would react to being stuck on red , and if i get a PCN for this is should be resigned to the fact traddic lights is owned by the Mafia. the same thing happened to these lights only 2years ago and it is fairly frequent occurance here. i wonder why?
