Turning Left from Buxton Old Road onto the A6

Reported via desktop in the Permanent Traffic Lights category anonymously at 15:56, Thursday 23 June 2022

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3618593.

Traffic light sensor does not detect motorcycles. I am a shift worker and regularly go to work on a scooter very early in the morning. When I arrive at this junction the traffic light does not detect my presence and hence does not change to let me through. It doesn't seem to matter where I position myself. It doesn't seem to matter if I weave left and right on approach in a vain attempt to "break" the beam. I therefore have to go through on Red when the coast is clear. This is not acceptable. Please adjust the traffic lights accordingly.

  • Thank you for contacting Cheshire East Highways. We have logged your enquiry and passed it to a member of our team.

    Our teams are working hard to manage and respond to reports from members of the public.

    We are currently experiencing an increase in demand of reported issues along with a temporary reduction in available staff due to Covid-related sickness and self-isolation.

    During this time and until the situation improves, we will be prioritising those issues that present most risk to the travelling public. While we normally aim to provide you with a response within 20 working days, response times for all other reported issues may take longer than usual.

    Thank you for your patience.
