Traffic lights delay causing traffic to back up and impatient drivers are going through on red light.

Reported in the Signal Stuck category anonymously at 10:22, Tuesday 30 July 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1713294.

Since these set of lights that control the one lane bridge on Grendon Rd has hadd maintenance on July 17th 2019, they delay is too long causing traffic to back up on both sides. Drivers are becoming impatient and going through the red light as the wait time is too long. I go over this bridge 4 times a day and the delay is 4 minutes since the cars the opposite way have come through. I have waited 6 minutes at times. During rush hour the traffic backs up past the corner on station road and is extremely dangerous. Accident waiting to happen.
