Insufficient Delay

Reported via desktop in the General Fault category anonymously at 21:49, Thursday 12 January 2023

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS4121693.

There is an issue with a too short delay between lights turning read and subsequent lights turning green at Fiveways.

Eastbound traffic along the A20, turning right onto Green Lane (towards Chislehurst) is generally blocked due to Westbound A20 traffic.

There is sufficient space for several cars (I've seen up to 6) to pass the lights at green but then be unable to turn.

By the time they can start to move, traffic from Southwood Road has the green light and begins to move. This results in there often being dangerous conflicts in the junction.

I don't know if the timings are different at various times of the day. I generally do this junction at around 18:30 on weekdays and it's regularly dangerous.
