Lamps not working on traffic lights
Reported via desktop in the Lamp out (traffic lights) category anonymously at 14:06, Mon 2 November 2020
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2367619.
The amber and green light are not working on the traffic light on the left hand side of the road (if you are on Dunsmure and facing Stamford Hill).
This is causing congestion, noise pollution (as cars honk a lot to alert other cars the lights have changed) and dangerous driving (as cars are swerving on to the wrong side of the road to overtake stationary cars who have not noticed the lights have changed).
This is dangerous for everyone nearby. This has been a problem for two months now. Your website says this problem has been fixed. It has NOT been fixed. PLEASE fix this. Many thanks.
Your report has been investigated and we can confirm that there is a fault with these traffic lights. We have passed this to our contractors, and we aim to fix within 28 days. Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. Should you need anything else or have any questions please contact customer services on 0343 222 1234

I reported this issue to TFL on the 21st July, and whole heartedly agree with the most recent reporter re the noise pollution & dangerous behaviour of drivers, which coupled with persistent parking on the double yellows leading up to the lights is creating a dangerous environment for pedestrians.
It appears that TFL & your contractors have ignored this issue and repeatedly auto closed it for SIX MONTHS.
Today there was a serious collision in which multiple pedestrians were injured just one street south of these lights on the A10 - perhaps in light of this you might see fit to action this serious concern?!
