Lights failing causing back ups of traffic for the second time in a week.

Would hate to be the emergency services right now using this route. Second time this week I’ve been stuck at dead red lights on this road. Whoever provides this lighting system needs to be looked into. Not fit for purpose especially with fuel shortages. May as well closed the whole road off for what it’s worth. Especially when out of hours there’s no one to deal with it.

  • These temporary lights on a45 next to Morris housing development are still faulty, staying on Red for so long people are driving over the red light. The timings not right, causing long delays and long queues. I go over this 4 times a day to get to work and its a real pain and has been for weeks. I’ve just come over it at 11.40am 15th Ocotber.

  • Still not fixed. This is ridiculous. Why is it not possible for them to find temp lights that actually work?!

  • Please try and fix the Traffic lights. People are now travelling over on the RED light because they are RED to long. There must be an issue regarding Light timing. Why has this job taken / taking so long to fix.
