Lights changing to red too quickly.

Reported in the Traffic Lights (permanent only) category anonymously at 09:48, Monday 13 January 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

Lights change to red after a handful of cars have passed through. It seems as though the pedestrian crossing buttons have been activated (to allow pedestrians to cross) but there are no pedestrians. This was causing a dangerous tailback on north-bound A34 exit.

  • Thank you for recently contacting Oxfordshire County Council regarding the Newbury Rd West Toucan Crossing. An Engineer has checked the operation of the crossing and found it to be working as intended without any current faults. The crossing does have a Queue detector on the side road which will put a demand for the crossing (for gap creation purposes) when several cars are queued waiting join the main road. While onsite this was also found to be working as designed. We will continue to monitor the operation of the signals.

    State changed to: Fixed
