    Default Who do you complain to about Traffic Lights

    So,
    M4 Junc 13, they've replaced the traffic lights and changed the scheduling causing chaos every morning for the last few days. Junc 13 roundabout is now jammed solid as cars bounce from red light to red light and the gaps between changes allow for only a few cars at a time to go through.

    Even now, the M4 is backed up by about 4-5 miles as shown on the traffic cameras.

    Who do you write to/email to tell them about this monumental screw up?

    It's all caused by the new traffic lights/ phasing of the lights. They've taken away the high lights, leaving low ones only. This is the first morning we've not had temporary ones, just the low ones and the sceduling is rediculous. Only about 6-8 vehicles can get through the lights and you are sent from one red light to another all around the junction.

    The old scheduling allowed the traffic to flow by having several of the lights green at the same time.

    5-6 mile tailback on the M4 in both directions, purely caused by poor highways planning.

    Do you think that they won't be able to work it out though?

    I'd like to give them a push though to give it some priority.

    I've emailed the highways agency.

    It would be the local council wouldn't it...?

    Bristol and south glos CC have been on a 'fuck up the roads as well as humanly possiable' mission for quite some time now. They have installed lights on pretty much every roundabout on a long strech of dualy carridgeway which moved fine before and is now a complete mess.

    I really really dont know how they come to the conclusions that these 'improvements' will improve anything.

    A few years ago they installed about 6 give way bollards on another stretch of road that caused no end of problems and resulted in a few crashes. About 6 months later they removed the bollards and put speed ramps in.

    What a fucking waste of our taxes, and it just shows that these fools really dont know what they are doing...!

    It'll be the Highways Agency as both the M4 and A34 are theirs, and they'll be hiring the contractors doing the work there.

    Alternatively put it all down to a government conspiracy to get us all out of our cars and onto public transport.

    Exactly...

    The ring road was the only good stretch of road left in bristol, now they have gone and fucked that up too.

    BTW, you might already know, but they are planning on putting lights on all of the roundabouts soon, so it will be even more congested than it already is.

    Can anyone give me a sensiable reason as to why the fuck tards goverment do these kind of things...?
