Missing light

Reported via mobile in the General Fault category anonymously at 13:06, Sunday 16 May 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2729142.

I live near the 4 way junction in Chiswick between the A402 and the A315, near Stamford Brook station.

This 4 was junction has a left only lane which constantly disrupts traffic due to the fact that the first car in the queue cannot see the left turn green light. The traffic lights only show the left turn green at the junction line, the light on the other side of the road (only one visible to the first car) does not show this left turn light. This means that the first car often does not realise they can turn left resulting in a constant amount of honking and shouting from the cars in the queue who can see the left turn light.

The fix for this is simple and I do not understand why it has not been done. The light on the other side of the road needs to also include the left turn green light, doing this will mean the first car will be able to see when to go and stop the constant noise.

Is this please something TFL can do?

  • Do you have a timeline for when this may be fixed though? It has been well over a year possibly multiple since the removal of the bike stoppage area which means the car stop line was moved under the light. Causing the driver to miss the green. The noise and anger caused by this is every day and all day!
