Rotating through all sides even if no cars waiting

Reported via mobile in the Request Timing Review category anonymously at 15:50, Wed 1 December 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3153877.

The newly installed lights are rotating through all jncs and crossings even if there are no cars waiting or if no one has pressed the button to cross the road.

The delays are a joke and completely unacceptable and unnecessary.

The lights automatically turn green to allow traffic out of the new housing estate even if there are no cars waiting, the crossings for pedestrians also turn to the green man with no one in sight or having pressed the button to cross.
