No more Waiting for Godot at junction

Ever been brought to a halt at traffic lights, frustrated that needlessly they are red?
Vastern Rd lights working properly: bus exiting Trooper Potts Way

If you regularly travel along Vastern Road, Reading, you will no doubt have had to stop at the junction by Reading Station, the road recently named Trooper Potts Way. Needlessly because there are no pedestrians, buses, taxis or bikes crossing the junction.

Well I am happy to report that Reading Borough Council (RBC) officers looked into my complaint and agreed there was a problem. RBC hopes that the replacement of the detection cards for the controller has resolved it.  When I checked last night the lights only changed when needed.

If however you witness these lights going red unnecessarily, please let me know and I will pursue the matter further.
