Why is the traffic lights at the junction of Weedon Street and IKEA on Attercliffe Common out of sequence? When travelling down at night, the traffic lights stay on green longer for Weedon Street / IKEA right turning filter lanes and remain on red for traffic travelling straight along Attercliffe Common.
This then leads to people using the right filter lanes on green, before then merging back onto Attercliffe Common creating a dangerous situation should any cars be wanting to turn right across Attercliffe Common.
This surely shouldn’t be the case? To have traffic jams of 10+ cars at 6am waiting to travel straight across Attercliffe Common, while the right filter lane is green even though no cars are wanting to turn right or even any cars on Weedon Street!
Can these signal timings be looked into, especially at off-peak periods as it just causes uncessecery traffic congestion and air pollution. Not to mention the dangerous makeovers that many now seem to be taking in the sense of using the right filter lane to then cut back into the main running lane - bypassing the red light!
