Lorry driven into traffic light on Hackney Road/Queensbridge Road corner

Reported in the Damage - pole leaning / equipment detached from pole/facing the wrong direction category anonymously at 14:41, Monday 27 July 2020

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2218718.

One of the traffic lights is literally hanging off the pole by a few wires after a lorry turned left out of Queensbridge Road and knocked it over about an hour ago. They've also knocked the bollard placed on the corner so it needs straightening.

  • I would call this safety critical personally... The traffic light is currently swaying in the wind, cm away from passing traffic and pedestrians. And FYI the number 0343 222 1234 is out of service.
