Back to all reports

The new traffic lights on the bridge do not allow enough time for cycles to cross safely.

Reported in the Request Timing Review category anonymously at 11:59, Monday 16 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1769010.

On 2 separate occasions I have proceeded on green to find vehicles coming towards me before crossing the junction as the lights have changed too soon. The new sensors do not appear to detect cyclists. This issue appears to have got worse since the recent works/new lights were completed. There is a risk of injury/road traffic collision.
