Traffic lights very bad timings

Reported via desktop in the Timing issue category anonymously at 11:29, Monday 3 January 2022

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 413038.

There are several issues at the traffic lights at Station Road and I will try to explain as clearly as I can. When approaching the lights from Grantham Road and head into the left lane, all the lights are on red. When the lights change, both lanes turning left and right from Southgate are permitted to go through as obviously the lights change to green, why can’t this lane turning left onto Southgate from Grantham road also turn green, why does it stay on red? Another scenario is in the right hand lane at the lights and having approached from Grantham Road, if the lights change to red, and the train barriers come down, there is at least a 3 minute delay before the straight ahead arrow turns to green say to go to Aldi, why is this? This also happens if upon leaving Aldi, left hand lane and again train barriers are down, the straight on arrow to go along Grantham road take ages. Last scenario is that when the train barriers come down, on one occasion I timed it, there was a 5 minute wait before the train came through, why is this? There is so much traffic coming through the town, I’m sure that getting everyone moving asap surely is paramount? Very frustrating at times.
