Dark Lane Pedestrian Crossing

Reported via desktop in the Request Timing Review category anonymously at 20:13, Saturday 27 January 2024

Sent to Northumberland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5499829.

This has been reported on multiple occasions by different people but the issue is not resolved. Once someone has crossed and the traffic starts to move, if someone else presses the button, the light change in 15 seconds. This is causing almost constant tailbacks/stationary traffic back to the junction with Dacre Street / Morrisons roundabout. Fifteen seconds between crossings is far too short. Please review this please.
