Handy Cross Traffic light phasing

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


Traffic signal sequencing are causing delays to enter Handy Cross roundabout from Wycombe Road and have become worse over the years. It is not unknown for the lights to go green and no vehicle to be able to join the junction and progress due to vehicles blocking their path. This is particularly frustrating for users when it stops people crossing a lane and going in a different direction. This is not directly the fault of the users blocking but is as a consequence of the traffic light phasing allowing too many vehicles into that area before allowing the traffic light for Wycombe road to go green.

The chain reaction is that people do not use the lanes on Wycombe Road appropriately or consistently meaning there is a greater chance of a road traffic collision. Public transport use the wrong lane as otherwise they will be delayed too long.

We the undersigned request that Highways England perform an open review of the traffic light sequence and other options to prevent standstill traffic blocking the other routes thereby increasing both flow of traffic and the safety of road users.
