  • The right turn indicative green arrow will only operate if called by a vehicle presence in excess of three seconds. If the vehicle moves from the detection zone the demand will cancel after three seconds. The detector is sited 3m from the pedestrian studs and has been positioned to pick up the second vehicle turning right. It is intended that the first vehicle will turn in gaps or at the end of the full green period. Please contact us directly if further information is required.

  • Not everyone knows the correct place to stop in the box due to worn out road markings and the detector does not detect small vehicles and motorcycles very well at all maybe there needs to be a big white X in the road so some know where to wait properly!

  • I have requested that the worn out road markings be reinstated by our Highway maintenance team. We will check the sensitivity of the detection.
