There is heavy congestion of traffic due to poor traffic light ushering. As the road is narrow, right turning vehicles from Ilam Road to Riccarton Road have to wait for the whole flow of straight going traffic before turning. During peak hours, the flow of traffic doesn't end, so only 1 right turning vehicle can turn with each traffic light change, thus holding up all the vehicles behind, including those intending to head straight. Suggesting a right turn only light to clear the right turning vehicles, so as to smooth up the traffic. Cheers.
