Sensor not positioned correctly

Reported via desktop in the General Fault category anonymously at 21:19, Wednesday 21 September 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3840027.

Approaching the lights from Wickham Lane to turn right into Kings highway the sensor does not pick up the right hand lane to turn in. I have been stuck here several times because the sensor does not pick up cars on the right hand lane only the left. If no one is in the left lane to go straight it misses the cycle and does not go green. The sensor needs re positioning! This has been reported several times and put as “fixed” but it has never been correctly positioned. This needs to be corrected before an accident happens. The only way you can get the light green is to go in the left land and cut over to the right when the light changes… VERY DANGEROUS AND ANNOYING!!
