Traffic light stuck on red

Reported via Android in the General Fault category anonymously at 21:37, Thursday 28 March 2024

Sent to TfL 1 hour, 46 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS5780324.

This is ongoing for 3 years now. It relates to the A217 southbound right turn into Kimpton Park Way. The sensor on top of the lights is broken/disconnected. The only way to get a green light is be driving over the under tarmac sensor which is located past the stopping light. If there's a regular driver at the front, they will do this, but most people don't know so they will stop before the line and the light will perpetually stay red.
