Excessive noise

Reported in the General Fault category anonymously at 18:12, Tuesday 7 July 2020

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2190201.

The beeping noise from the pedestrian crossing is extremely loud (Landsdowne Way + Wandsworth Road intersection). This is particularly invasive during summer months when windows must be open, and this disrupts my sleep as I often work nights and need to sleep during the day.

According to my neighbour, this issue was logged (ref 14453530) and an engineer was sent out to reduce the volume level on 2020-Jan-02. Unfortunately I detect no improvement since then, and the noise level is still disturbing and distressing me.

I also reported this to Lambeth council but they have not replied to my queries since last year (I am following up with them again now.)

I would be most grateful if an engineer could be sent out to reduce the volume further.

Many thanks and regards.

  • Thanks for your response but I find it a little confusing. What "non urgent fault" has been found through your investigations? Can you explain what precisely the contractors have been contracted to do - presumably lower the volume settings? I would appreciate it if you were a bit more specific about how you intend to resolve this issue. And I am also a bit concerned that the status of this query has now been set to "fixed" despite nothing having actually been fixed. Is there a "pending", or equivalent status, that would fit more appropriately to the circumstances? Many thanks and regards.
