Reprogramming of lights

Reported via Android in the General Fault category anonymously at 08:48, Tuesday 11 April 2023

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS4422968.

From western way towards Plumstead, There are 2 sets of lights here one after another by the belmarsh intersection.

They should go on red/green at the same time to facilitate flow of vehicles from western way.

Currently, the lights in front stays red when here when the set of lights behind turns green, which makes no sense because traffic piles up at the back on a green light at the rear set of traffic lights. The traffic lights in front blocks the vehicular flow.

This was never a problem until it was programmed by an engineer few weeks ago and it must have been a programming mistake. Please programme it back to the previous settings which works fine to avoid further unnecessary congestion.
