Temporary trafic lights need to be mannually controlled

From 7am a queue starts building up from grove towards Marcham because of the traffic lights. Same in the evenings where from 5pm the queue towards Wantage backs up from East Hanney. What is disappointing to see is that there is no queue on the opposite direction. By manually controling the traffic lights - like it has been done in East Hendred last year - most delays could be avoided. Given this is the first of nine weeks of those temporary lights something could be done to minimise the disruption to daily commuters.

Last night when I was trying to get home the traffic lights were not being controlled correctly. Southbound the queue was to East Hanney, northbound there was nothing. The controller of the lights was asleep in his car. This is causing severe delays, please can highways speak with the traffic management company to get this sorted and make those needing to commute have a better journey. This was at 5pm

11/01/2019 16:46 these lights are still not being manually controlled during peak hours as required. How long does it take for Oxford County Council to investigate and how many more hours must be wasted needlessly sat in traffic because, yet again a utility fails to meet its obligations?

Can it be please be enforce that the traffic lights are manually controlled? It is an unecessary waist of commuters’ time to wait more than 30 mins to cross half a mile at 7am. Simply because of new houses being built.
