Hi. This issue has been going on for MONTHS now. I have been driving to work during lockdown this way and the Traffic Lights on the Cameron Toll roundabout are always activated automatically. This is now causing unnecessary tailbacks and convention . It is even causing problems with Ambulance's trying to get by. This is just ONE of many traffic light systems where the pedestrian Crossing has been switched to come in Automatically. It wasn't much of a problem during lockdown. It is now. Can you please inform why this is happening around Edinburgh. It ALSO includes the pedestrian crossings at the Royal Infirmary, again causing unesseary delays and build up of traffic.

    Traffic Lights on Dalkeith Road at the Royal Infirmary Edinburgh. Both sets of Pedestrian crossing lights stuck on WAIT. Also Pedestrian Lights at CAMERON TOLL. The WAIT lights on all the time and delays traffic on roundabout to get onto Dalkeith Road. Especially at rush hour this is a major problem for tail backing traffic. This has been on going throughout lockdown and up to present day.

  • All pedestrian crossing lights now come on Automatically. Nobody is at the main traffic lights to press the WAIT buttons! All roads around Cameron Toll are now being congested! This is Causing unnecessary congestion. Emergency vehicles have been caught up in this really Bizarre setting of these WAIT lights. Is this a deliberate attempt at THE COUNCIL to say there's congestion and get some new congestion charge in? You have to wonder with how the Council is behaving with Roads in and around Edinburgh these days! I've been reporting this since APRIL 2020 and still no one has done anything about this.
