Wait button only works if you push it in the right place
Reported via desktop in the Pedestrian wait button not working category anonymously at 18:17, Friday 23 October 2020
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2354791.
For some years pedestrians pushing the call button on the south west corner of the crossing have found that it sometimes doesn't operate, and so they (generally but not always) wait patiently until someone else pushes a different button on one of the other poles. The reason seems to be that it depends on whereabout on the button you put your finger - sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
