On any given day at any given time for traffic using Chapel Rd (in either direction) the traffic in Chapel Rd just sits there waiting for the signals for Ormiston road on green to change. Ormiston in both directions for the full green just goes forever until it runs out to a ridiculously long maximum green phase. Fine if there was traffic in Ormiston Rd triggering the loops in Ormiston Rd to keep the signals green, however its not the case and everyone just waits forever in Chapel Rd (both sides) traffic backed up back over the small bridge to the north of the intersection toward the dangerous bend on Chapel by the church all waiting for nothing running on Ormiston Rd. Been like it for over a month now just hopeless and now people are simply driving through red lights or doing manoeuvre's around traffic islands to duck into Ormiston and out again, Stupid accident promoting stuff I grant you however its caused by signals that AT or their techs have fiddled with and have not monitored - yet again! By all means have a good Max Green phase when there is continual demand on a main corridor, however if there is a 10 gap with no traffic at all the green phases should drop to amber red and deliver a green phase to waiting traffic in Chapel Rd. Auckland has most of its traffic congestion simply because of stuff like this.
