Traffic Lights on Tunnel Ave not changing correctly

Reported via desktop in the General Fault category anonymously at 09:30, Thursday 15 February 2024

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS5579644.

The traffic lights at the top of Tunnel Avenue are causing long delays as the lights are not changing regularly in line with the other traffic lights around that area, causing cars to block the road. The traffic lights are not in sync with the other traffic lights meaning when the lights do eventually turn green, cars cannot move as Blackwall Lane is already being blocked up by other cars causing long delays.
