Thank you for contacting Northamptonshire Highways. An engineer has attended site and checked the alignment and visibility of the signals. The current junction layout requires vehicles tuning right out of New south bridge road and old Towcester rd to give way to oncoming traffic. This is in common with many traffic signal controlled junctions that do not have dedicated right turn signals. When the housing developments were built there were no modifications carried out to the existing signals to account for the extra traffic. The existing signals are reaching towards the end of their life and we will be looking at redesigning the junction. There is currently no timescale for this.
