Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3165724.
The sequencing of the lights is hazardous. This resulted in an RTA just last week. If travelling east on Newcastle Road and about to turn right, south, onto Stock Lane, when the filter for traffic from the east turning right up Crewe Road, the lights turn red. Any sane person would assume that the lights on the opposite side were also red, but not so, so if you turn right onto Stock Lane you are at risk of someone bowling up Newcastle Road from the east. Surely when the filter activates, the green light for westward-bound traffic on Newcastle Road should turn red. I am minded to inform the people who were hurt in the latest shunt where to lay the blame. If I have not made myself clear(east/west/red/green/left/right!), please get in touch and I will try to explain what is manifestly wrong with these traffic lights.

We deal with defects based on the level of immediate risk. We have assessed the issue and it does not present an immediate risk to highway users at this time. As the problem you have reported is not causing an immediate safety issue we will now look at the best long- term approach for this location. We keep all roads and highway assets safe through our routine inspections. If anything is identified as a risk during a future inspection, we will take action to deal with it as appropriate.
State changed to: No further action
