Signal does not pick up motorcycles

Reported in the Signal Stuck category anonymously at 17:31, Wednesday 20 May 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2122961.

I travel along Northampton Lane South towards Moulton Way, late at night when there are few cars on the road. The new lights do not pick me up, or change for me at the end of Northampton Lane South. They change for cars crossing the junction in front of me and then all signals return to red and remain so. I have moved forwards and backwards at the junction in an attempt to trigger them but nothing works.

  • This is still an issue and means I have to negotiate the junction when lights from all directions are on Red.
