Hi there I work in the CBD and on my journey into town I have to turn Right from Stanley Street, into Alten Road - I have been using this route for over a month now, and each morning (approx 8.20am) I have observed that the Green light arrow only lasts for 7 seconds approx - only enough for 3 or 4 cars to move Right from Stanley Street into Alten Road. Very, very frustrating if you're the 5th car along etc!! You then have to wait about 4 minutes or so before the Green arrow appears again. This also has a flow on effect of backing cars up in the Right hand turning lane, and the cars further back then ‘spill’ out into the 'straight' lane that heads cars onto the Motorways (because not many cars can turn Right in the time available at the Green turning arrow from Stanley onto Alten...the root of the problem). The duration needs to be extended for the timing of the Right hand turning Green arrow from Stanley Street into Alten Road. Thanks you – from all those who use this set of traffic lights.
