  • Can confirm. The stop light timer seems to have been updated and is Green only for 6 seconds which is causing massive queues from the intersection with Watford Way (which has the stop lights in question) to the Colindale roundabout

  • This needs to be fixed as soon as possible this is ridicolous, causing huge traffic, we are paying road tax and you are only good at sucking peoples money. This needs to be fixed now, I now have to go through a different longer route to work because of this stupid traffic light fault where most people are escaping causing more traffic on other routes. FIX THIS NOOOWWWW

  • The timings of the traffic lights has been a major issue for days and still needs to be fixed ASAP.

    To be clear, the light is not stuck on red, but it is not turning green for long enough to allow enough cars to go through, causing massive tailbacks.

  • TFL really should prioritise. The members of staff in charge of this keeps saying it is fixed or will be fixed and then nothing gets done. Please feel free to come down and have a look at what a joke this has become. Shame on you TFL for not doing anything promptly about this misery.

  • The lights have been an issue since Friday. Constantly ambulances and police cars are having to squeeze through. This shouldn’t have been listed as fixed, when it wasn’t. Calling to re report this was almost impossible , especially with a phone line that doesn’t work. This shouldn’t take 4 days to fix.

  • Massive inconvenience especially in peak times like school drop off and pick up, a normal 5 minute traffic is now 20+ minutes fix asap please

  • The problem has not been fixed and causing massive issues with getting to work and dropping kids to school. Kid was half an hour late to school today as we were stuck for over half a hour at this traffic light!

  • Still not fixed this morning, massive tailback causing unacceptable levels of pollution. Well done, TFL.

    Clearly you don’t appreciate the gravity of the situation. Just look on google maps and look at the traffic situation - it’s essentially red due to the jam tailing back by a kilometer. Not even exaggerating.

  • This is an ongoing issue. It's not fixed!!! TFL, fix it urgently. Today is Tuesday 10/05/22 and there are complaints since last week. It's also affecting emergency services! I was stuck in traffic for 30 minutes this morning and in that time there were two ambulances and police cars stuck in the massive queue.

  • Green light only stays on for 6 seconds. But you already knew that

  • This signal on Aerodrome road continues to be an issue and is a huge inconvenience for all road users given that it is so short (hardly 5-6 seconds). Can this please be fixed ASAP?

  • Been stuck in traffic for over 40mins. This has been a nightmare to travel in. Please urgently fix this.
