Faulty traffic light sensor

The traffic lights for the junction of the A126 and Maidstone Road (next to National Tyres building) are behaving unusually and have been for some time now. There seems to be a sensor fault with the traffic lights facing Maidstone Road, which allows the lights to stay green for 90 seconds regardless of high, low or no traffic load, significanly delaying everyone's journey for no reason and causing long queues along the A126 road during rush hour. Please investigate. If the sensors are fine then maybe some timings adjustment is needed.
