Traffic lights on A417 Wantage Road
Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 09:15, Friday 14 February 2020
Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later
On a fair number of occasions over the last 12 months there have been roadworks on the A417. On each and every occasion the traffic lights to manage traffic have failed in their objective. As a resident I can confirm that peak rush hour times are 7am to 9am (Wantage traffic travels towards Didcot/Harwell) and 4.30pm to 6.30pm (Didcot/Harwell traffic returns to Wantage). Is it possible to program the lights to observe this or have them manually controlled during those periods? It is making life miserable to motorists, particularly at the end of the day when everyone wants to get home!

I, and many others have been complaining about this for quite a few years now.
You would think someone from OCC would take note of all these complaints and suggestions made, and actually do something about it instead of continuing to ignore the problem!!!!

Well put. However I have been telling them this for 30 years, so I'm not hopeful that anything will change.
