In necessary traffic jam

Reported via iOS in the Trunkroad or motorway defect category by John Riley at 11:38, Tue 12 February 2019

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 8 minutes later

Have been travelling this route for three months. Every morning there is a backlog of traffic that takes 20 mins from m69 to the tgi Friday roundabout. As you can see clearly in the attached photo there is very little traffic on the adjoining roads but the lights do not allow proportionate traffic to flow. Please review the light phasing to prioritise clearing the traffic on the a46. This makes an absolute nonsense of the investment made in the underpass at the next junction.

  • I have had contact from the contractors who maintain the traffic lights. They promised to send an inspector. Two weeks later and the problem persists. Photo attached

  • There is no difference. Just return it to being a roundabout with no traffic and all will be well!!!!!

  • Still no difference - traffic backed up to the M6 again this morning - no obvious obstruction other than the roundabout with traffic lights which cause an obstruction!

  • Still no difference - if the traffic signals can't be changed perhaps the addition of a yellow cross hatched box and some cameras to enforce not blocking the junction

  • A couple of weeks back the lights were broken and the traffic was much better!
