Signal not changing to green for cyclists

Reported via desktop in the Signal Failure category anonymously at 21:01, Wed 11 November 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2383185.

This is a regular problem from both directions. At present, when the bridge is approached heading towards Northampton, the lights do not change for cyclists until a car crosses the bridge from the other direction. I normally cycle home this way around 22:00 and have waited for several minutes, eventually riding through the red light rather than wait there all night. This is obviously dangerous for the cyclists and other traffic. I have reported this problem several times in the past and any repairs have only been effective for a few weeks before recurring.
