Green Person Authority not working properly

Reported via mobile in the Stuck on red category anonymously at 19:52, Sat 12 June 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2787561.

Hi, thanks for updating that the lights are working correctly on Green Person Priority. Having observed the lights for the last half hour, they are triggering roughly every minute, with an audible beep, then switching back to Red Person automatically even when no cars are present. The noise is very disruptive for local resident and for children since it continues until 9 or 10pm. If Green Person Priority is necessary then please can you make the lights operate in the way described (ie stay on Green Man until a car approaches rather than just cycling as normal) and also turn off the audible crossing noise? The repeated on/off red light also results in far more idling cars which is also terrible for the environment. Thank you very much for taking the time to consider the views of local residents concerned about safety, noise and pollution caused by this recent change in the operation of the lights.
