The traffic lights

Reported via desktop in the Stuck on red category anonymously at 11:11, Wednesday 5 October 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3869501.

Good afternoon,

Since last week the phasing of the traffic lights when heading south on Watford Way (A1 into A41) through Fiveways Interchange are out of sync, causing an unnecessary 3 lane wide, 1 mile long, 20 minute traffic jam back to The Rise.

This isn't the case during the morning rush hour, but each afternoon around 4pm the phasing of the 3 sets of lights is so poor that no more than 4 cars progress south on each rotation.

I can see on your TFL Streetcare system that other motorists reported this problem last week and it is disappointing that the phasing has not been urgently addressed, as it is bringing this part of London to a standstill.

Can you please contact me to advise what action will be taken? Regards

465 Watford Way, London NW4 4TR
