Erroneous response to "Dangerous traffic light sequence clashes with pedestrian crossing"

Reported via desktop in the Traffic Lights (permanent only) category anonymously at 17:33, Thursday 14 September 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Ref report 4982682 - your response references the "right turn into Marsh Lane" but my report was regarding the right turn onto Marston Road. I therefore don't believe that this investigation should be considered to be complete. In the absence of a right-turn green light arrow (when turning right onto Marston Road) there is definitely not a delay of 9 seconds before the conflicting pedestrian crossing receives a green signal. I have witnessed this numerous times and it is unsafe. Vehicles waiting to turn right would not (and do not) wait behind the stop line, they proceed into the right-turn filter lane and wait for a break in oncoming traffic (or the right-turn green light arrow) to turn. In the absence of this right-turn green light arrow at certain times, the delay before the conflicting pedestrian crossing receives a green signal is not sufficient (it is certainly not 9 seconds). If vehicles are expected to wait behind the stop line in order to be detected to activate a right-turn green light arrow, surely this should be clearly signposted and the traffic lane should not be a mixture of straight on/right turn, it should be right-turn only? I really believe that this needs further investigation.

  • Thank you for your report. The operation of the junction has been checked and we can confirm that there is 9 seconds (intergreen) between the right turn into Marson Rd losing right of way and the conflicting pedestrian crossing receiving a green signal.
