Timing of lights significantly delaying buses

Reported via mobile in the General Fault category anonymously at 22:36, Wednesday 20 March 2024

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS5745612.

Traffic light timing from Aerodrome Road has broken and is too short. Only lets 3 vehicles out from Aerodrome each time.

As well as causing huge traffic tailbacks that cause problems down to the roundabout, it is delaying the TFL buses linking Colindale to Hendon and Finchley Central.

Colindale station is about to be closed. From Easter all the northern line traffic will be on bus replacements for two weeks (all stations closed from Golders Green) using aerodrome road. And after that, Colindale station will be closed and so all customers told to get the bus via this route to Hendon. This route will be busier than ever so the lights error is critical.
