Copy of a letter sent to Hertfordshire Highways.

SIR - Regarding the A1 (M) junction four, Jack Oldings Roundabout:

Joining the A1(M) southbound at 'Oldings' as you approach from Birchwood, the traffic lights do not face towards the approaching traffic, but away to the right at an angle of about 45 degrees (effectively facing towards Hertford).

This makes the stop signal very difficult to see and I have personally witnessed several red light violations by other motorists, not because they are deliberately jumping the red light, but because they simply can't see there is a light there at all.

This comment was raised by me as a "complaint" on the feedback section of your website.

It was marked by you as being scheduled for some sort of remedial action, but after many months nothing has been done.

Will you please correct this immediately and turn the lights towards the approaching traffic before someone gets killed?
