Drivers turning left at the traffic lights are unable to see the Left-Turn Filter Light turn green and this leads to Beeping by the cars behind, aggressive behaviour by drivers and Noise Pollution at the Junction. There is no fault with the traffic light. It is just poorly located, drivers cannot see it or think it relates to the bus lane and wait for the full green light to appear.
Following months of correspondence with TFL and Highways@Lambeth. Lambeth Council (Highways Team) have said:
