  • It would appear that the lights go red for Bristol Road and then only let Church Road out, then goes back to Bristol Road. So leaving Staunton Lane out until next time, even though traffic is waiting there. I have never seen these lights work in this sequence before. Maybe traffic is not being detected on Staunton Lane.

  • This problem has not been resolved. Cars cannot exit from Staunton Fields as all road markings have been removed due to resurfacing and because traffic is tail backed to Stockwood due to traffic lights.
