Traffic lights don’t always go to green

Reported via mobile in the Stuck on red category anonymously at 20:16, Sunday 14 May 2023

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS4553586.

Traffic light on Powerscroft road facing the junction does not go green unless the vehicles approach it past the recommended level. The issue with this is that if you advance the car too much you’re at risk of not leaving space for buses coming up the road. If the vehicle in front does not know this it can create a traffic jam as the lights will not change. This is causing people to go through the red light which is very dangerous.
