Traffic Light Sequence Causing Long Delays

Reported via mobile in the Traffic lights (NH) category anonymously at 10:06, Wed 26 July 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4826742.

The timing of the traffic lights at Lydiate Ash from the A491 is causing a 2 mile queue at busy times. The lights stay green for just 5 seconds. When the additional ongoing roadworks are in progress there are further delays at the lights with two lanes being coned off.

  • Traffic lights on A91, Sandy lane approaching the roundabout at junction 4 of M5 are only allowing approx 3 cars before changing to red. This problem occurred a few months ago since there were some works taking place around there. This is causing long traffic delays backing all the way down Sandy lane.

  • There are still problems with the sequencing of the lights causing considerable delays. The lights were not working this morning, this is the first time there was no long delays at the roundabout in the last 2 months. Please can this be resolved urgently.
