There was a power cut about mid Dec. Since, the priorities on these lights are wrong. In light traffic, the green is permanently on French’s Avenue. This forces the A505 traffic to stop. There has to be at least two cars in either direction, not one in each, for the lights to recognise and turn green for them. In a stream of traffic, it will let approx 5 cars over, before switching to red so it can let the French’s Avenue light go green - even though there’s no cars on French’s Avenue needing the green. Further, occasionally, every 3rd cycle?, there is a 5 second pause with all lights on red in every direction. Before the power cut A505 was priority and green all the time.
