Crossing alert sound far too loud - please turn off

Reported via desktop in the General Fault category anonymously at 09:16, Mon 5 April 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2653146.

This has been marked fixed but hasn't - the crossing sound across Hermitage road on the corner of Hermitage Road and Green Lanes and also across green lanes is far too loud and keeps my household up at night and is constant irritant during the day and for shiftworkers sleeping, can the sound please be turned off? This is a residential area and is an annoyance for many and is unnecessary - there are many silent crossings in London and this should be one

  • Hi There - this still hasn't been fixed.

    Please can someone look into this and get the sound turned off on both these crossings they are not necessary to have sound and are much too loud for a residential area, especially considering a much bigger crossing down the road at Manor House station is silent and is not a residential area.
