The red light is out

Reported via desktop in the Lamp out (traffic lights) category anonymously at 10:19, Wednesday 10 March 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2598731.

The red light at the powerscroft road, chatsworth road junction is out and has been so for months. Its absence is exacerbated by the fact the other light, which can be seen in the background of the image, is routinely turned so that it can't been seen by motorists approaching from powerscroft road.

  • Hello, I believe that the traffic lights that had been turned were straightened but have been now been formed more strongly in the other position. The light at end of Powerscroft Rd is still out and shows no red. There is no warning sign. Drivers cannot see the turned light ahead. Today I was out with daughters aged 2 and 6 and a car ran the red light right in front of us and could have injured someone. Please can this issue be fixed it has been going on for months.
