Priority out of sync to Strand Road Queues

Reported in the Traffic lights category anonymously at 14:53, Wed 4 December 2019

Sent to Lancashire County Council 3 minutes later

In an evening leaving Preston on Strand road there is significant traffic trying to join the flyover to leave Preston.

The Traffic lights underneath the flyover that allows Strand road to empty is poorly synchronised to the main Strand Road traffic lights some twenty yards earlier such that on the main junction green light the flyover is generally on red only allowing a few cars to cross before the junction becomes blocked.

By the time the flyover lights turn green then the main Strand road junction lights have changed, resulting in backing up traffic on strand road.

If the flyover access lights were better in sync with main junction Strand road and maybe for longer in an evening then the traffic would flow better down Strand road?
