Temporary traffic lights

Reported via desktop in the Signal Stuck category anonymously at 18:41, Tue 3 November 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2369698.

I live at 4 Woodlows House 51 St Edmunds Road. My flat overlooks Abington Square. Yesterday and today there has been a lot of car horns behind sounded due to the temporary traffic lights. These lights are insufficiently signed meaning that vehicles backed up outside my flat have no idea why the traffic is not moving as they cannot see the lights unless they are one of the first few cars. This is causing me stress as I work from home and the noise is disruptive to calls. It is also disturbing my leisure and sleep as drivers do not respect the cut-off for using horns.

Please address this oversight ASAP!
