  • Noticed this this morning too so we contacted highways out of hours as this will be a problem in the morning tomorrow!

  • Traffic lights are not in sync causing a lot of issues with all adjoining roads. This will be worse in peak traffic.

  • Please treat this as urgent as the traffic is currently blocked up all the way along Warkton Lane and down Barton Hill towards Wicksteed. It will be horrendous in peak hours.

  • The lights have been out of sync since Friday afternoon, causing huge backlogs even at times of low traffic. It is a major route in/out of town and will cause big delays tomorrow in peak traffic! This needs sorting urgently.

  • Still not fixed as of 15:50 despite a phone call to highways this morning.

  • Please can you provide a phone number, we live right by these lights and have been struggling to get off and on our drive due to two lanes of cars blocking access to our drive! Having to wait up to 5 working days is not acceptable, plus this issue will cause chaos in the week during rush hour which could lead to accidents. Many children also walk this area to and from school. Issue needs to e resolved ASAP

  • This is an urgent problem due to volume of traffic, especially in the rush hours. The lights at the Seagrave Manor junction stay on red therefore when the Barton Rd lights change to green, nothing can move. This causes major jams both sides of Barton Rd and also Walkton Lane. Please sort ASAP!!

  • Traffic backing up this evening onto Warkton Lane as lights at East Wood Avenue are completely out of sync. Its been causing absolute chaos at rush hour over the past few days too.

  • Traffic Light Sequence Causing Congestion. Plenty of space for moving traffic, yet the light sequence forces some drivers to stay still until they learn to ignore the lights/lanes/turning-traffic at the risk of causing serious damage.

  • At peak times this is causing additional queuing due to the sequencing of the second set of lights. Queuing all the way back to roundabout at the top of Deeble Road

  • Traffic lights on warkton lane/barton road and Eastwood avenue are causing absolute chaos!!! It’s taking half an hour to get along warkton lane!!!! It’s been like this since Friday. Surely something needs to be done about it? Who in their right mind would put so many sets of traffic lights so close together?

  • Horrendous traffic conditions both in the morning at 7:15 this evening at 1600. The lights are out of sync and have been since Friday. If the council decide to build so many homes in such a small area, then they need to make sure the infrastructure can handle the traffic. I can see so many other people have complained and yet again nothing is been done as a matter of urgency. Too busy probably posting out the council tax bills and the extra money for the grass waste

  • Investigation: Completed (Fixed on site) - This has now been corrected and should be working to requirements.
