Please can you forward me a copy of that? I think it contradicts a
response I had, that it was awaiting correction by the constructors.

I've just checked work email, and I don't have the response either here
or at home. This was not long after the lights were installed, and it
went something like "We'll get someone to look at it" followed a bit
later by "They're working properly".

TBH, I tend to do what everyone else does at these new-fangled crossings
- just cross when it's clear. I did think that being able to get caught
in the middle was not good (so no choice but to chance it when it looks
clear), but I didn't discover this until after the original emails, so
that wasn't part of the original complaint.
