Since fix of the fault with the traffic lights last Monday, the timings of the traffic lights on Handy cross roundabout have been changed and out of sync causing tailback of traffic. For example when entering the roundabout from the A404, the lights go green for short period of time whilst the next lights on the roundabout are already red so there is a queue of traffic blocking the junction waiting for the second set of the lights to go green. By the time those lights go green the ones on the A404 entry have gone back to red so the traffic can't flow anywhere. Before the fault last monday the traffic timings and sequences were great as they allowed the traffic to flow off their junction and nearly all the way round to their exit without any tailbacks.
