TRAFFIC lights in Selsdon are causing so much trouble that councillors are lobbying to get changes made to them.
Selsdon councillors have been lobbying the council's highways team and Transport for London to add a filter to the lights at Selsdon Sainsbury's to ease congestion at peak times.
Tailbacks have become increasingly bad in the area, often extending as far back as Sanderstead roundabout, because parents from Croydon High School are turning into Sainsbury's and blocking the road for other vehicles.
Cllr Tim Pollard explained: "Parents of pupils at Croydon High School often turn into Sainsbury's to drop their children off.
"Although I don't want to make it difficult for the parents to use the car park, it has created tailbacks that can really disrupt the area at peak rush hour times.
"I think this can be easily solved by putting a right filter on to the traffic lights, so cars can turn into the car park earlier and allow other cars to drive down through Addington Road.
"Only two or three cars are able to turn into the car park at any one time, which seems ridiculous. We want to create an easier flow of traffic in Selsdon and Sanderstead, so this seems like an easy fix."
