Inconsistent traffic lights

The traffic light system from intersection to intersection along Riccarton Road, Bealey Avenue, Blenheim Road, Moorhouse Avenue (in fact all over Christchurch) is terribly out of sync and causing unnecessary interruptions in traffic flow. It is a common scenario for me to drive literally from one intersection to the next encountering a continual series of red lights one after the other - with no green light continuity between the intersections at all. This occurs regardless of the amount of traffic and time of day. By the time I manage to approach each of the following intersections the traffic lights turn red and stop the flow of traffic, one intersection after the other. Whatever syncing or timing events that are currently in place (if at all?) between each set of lights is extremely ineffectual. When is the traffic light system in Christchurch going to be reviewed for effective syncing to assist traffic flow?
