Phases are mis-set

Reported via desktop in the General Fault category anonymously at 14:21, Wednesday 10 April 2024

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS5834800.

One of the phases of the lights changes to red the traffic lights for northbound traffic, which is both continuing straight on and turning right to Magdalen Road, while the southbound traffic remains green. This is the wrong way around! It is illogical to stop all northbound traffic while southbound can continue southbound. Even if cars are waiting to turn right to Magdalen Road, there is no reason to stop cars from continuing straight on, while southbound cars continue through their green light. If there is to be any different phasing for north- and southbound traffic, then it is the northbound that requires additional green time so that vehicles turning right on to Magadalen Rd can do so while southbound vehicles are held at red.
