I have been driving this route for over 10 years, along Shore Rd, up Ayr St and into The Domain. The phasing was the same length for many years and worked pretty well to move the traffic swiftly through. More recently the phasing is being changed to short bursts. The queue of cars gets so long it goes all the way back along Shore road causing a real hold-up. THIS PHASING RESULTS IN MUCH SLOWER TRAFFIC MOVEMENT! As Ayr St is quite steep, getting the traffic started each time the light turns green is slow adding precious time, so doing it less often and keeping the momentum of movement going is the best option. The clog-up of cars and the time it takes is the evidence. It's taking an extra 5 mins with the short phasing. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE change it back to long phasing and leave it be! "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"
