Poor Timing Combinations

Reported via desktop in the Request Timing Review category anonymously at 08:27, Saturday 24 April 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2688470.

The prioritisation of traffic on the Spencer Bridge/Harlestone road junction appears to be incorrect and is causing significant queuing up Harlestone road towards Dallington park. This appears to be exacerbated by timing issues with the A428/A4500 further on and also the long existing timing issues of the combined pedestrian lights and the Spencer Bridge/Harlestone road lights. The entire are needs to be reviewed as a group rather than individually.
