We have received complaints from the police and also the Metroline Bus Garage supervisor that one of the traffic signals is being obscured by overhanging foliage. Not only is it creating visibility issues it is also causing the detection system to only operate sporadically. The traffic signal is the one situated on the corner of Watford Way and Aerodrome Road (northside). Please arrange for the foliage to be removed ASAP. Thank You.
