The lights change from green to red very quickly and then from red to green takes ages. This causes a tail back of traffic going up the Holestone Road.

  • Timing of the lights has still not been resolved. Still allowing only 5/6 cars through from a Harlestone Road into town. The two stage traffic lights also constantly cause problems, the first set should purely be a pedestrian crossing.

  • The queues into town seem to have gone as the lights stay green longer Thank You. However you now have caused long queues the other way from town to harlestone road ! Queuing back to lights at weedon road also blocking exit fro Aldi & Iceland ! It’s not rocket science shorten the time on Spencer Bridge Road & add it to the St James Road to Harlestone Road !! PLEASE !!
