Flow is not op­ti­mised

The Hutt News - - YOUR VIEWS -

Mark Owen of the NZ Trans­port Agency has replied to my let­ter (May 5) point­ing out that the Melling lights are not op­er­ated on a time ba­sis but that they re­spond to the cur­rent traf­fic flow.

The east-west traf­fic moves on the phase im­me­di­ately prior to the green light for Har­bourview traf­fic.

I have lived in Har­bourview for over 47 years.

In­nu­mer­able times I have waited to cross the in­ter­sec­tion with the road clear to the eastern end of the bridge.

Just when you think that the green light will come on a car will a ap­pear at the eastern end of the bridge and travel right across and turn right up SH2.

The traf­fic flow that I see is not be­ing op­ti­mised.

Per­haps the sys­tem needs re­cal­i­brat­ing.

Mr Owen should get out his oil can and his screw­driver and fix it.
