They have been out since at least 9 last night so hardly breaking news.

Not only do they fail often, but when the do, the traffic flow is great - they do not need lights here at all.

The way the lights are programmed means you cannot get to the next set of lights whilst on green, meaning 3 sets of acceleration and braking - which is the most environmentally damaging bit of driving.

OCC Traffic Light (Installation) department - remove these lights, and whilst you're at it, lose the ones at Frideswides Sq, and on the Redbridge roundabout by the P&R.

Could we also include the A34/Botley roundabout?
