Report: Traffic Light Sequence

10:05 Jul 2 2019 Near 53.276854380665,-6.3572009251506

Description
Hello, the traffic light sequence at this T junction needs to be altered. When the green signal is lit, traffic turning right towards the Old Mill area is stopped at the red signal at the t junction with the Kiltipper Road.

This is causing avoidable lengthy delays on Firhouse Road West on a daily basis.

The junctions of Old Bawn Road / Firhouse Road West, Old Bawn Road / Kiltipper Road and Old Bawn Road / Firhouse Road / Old Court Road are link together to allow for maximum traffic movement.

When the left & right turns are running out of Firhouse Road West the phasing also runs the left & right turn out of Kiltipper road and the left, straight and right turn from Firhouse road all onto the R113.

The sequence shuts down the Kiltipper left & right turn allowing the main road, R113 to run whilst leaving the left and right turn from Firhouse Road West operating. This allows vehicles to fill the available space before reverting to the main road R113.

Due to the amount of phases and staging movements across the 3 junctions and the volume of traffic on the R113 it may not be possible to achieve further green time from Firhouse West, however I have requested a review.
