Near-miss crash due to lights on A4500 green in 2 directions

Reported in the Request Timing Review category anonymously at 12:16, Sat 28 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1784163.

On Saturday 28th Sep at approx 11:20 I had stopped on the A4500 at the traffic lights waiting to turn right into Upton Valley Way North. My traffic light turned to green so I went forward to turn right but at the same time the traffic on the A4500 going from Northampton towards M1 junction 16 came forward. I had to brake hard and stop in the road between my set of traffic lights and their set of traffic lights lights until their lights turned to red. I regularly use this junction and was extremely shocked by what happened today.
