Traffic lights timing/sequencing miscalculated
Reported via desktop in the General Fault category anonymously at 00:04, Tuesday 3 January 2023
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS4078772.
There has been roadworks in Dec 2022 for a couple weeks during which period all the traffic lights at these junctions were switched off in place for temporary traffic lights. Since then, the timings/sequencing is flawed causing unneccessary congestion and pollution. For lights which should be on longer have reduced in timings and lights which should be shorter have increased in timings. I'm unsure if there's a system in place which allows for the previous timings to be restored. If not; lights turning right from Ealing Rd to A4005 should be extended as the green light timing has decreased (by half if not less). The lights turning left from Ealing Rd onto Ealing Rd are almost fine (they should mostly be on) but unsure if they're open the same length of time as what it was previously. The only time they turn red is for traffic going straight from A4005 upto Ealing Rd. The lights going straight from A4005 (past the speed camera) and the traffic coming the opposite way need so be synced as the lights turning right from Ealing Rd onto Ealing Rd are shorter too.
