Nearside traffic light for pedestrian crossing hidden by tree
Reported via desktop in the General Fault category anonymously at 18:27, Sunday 1 August 2021
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2906510.
Two separate sets of lights here - turn right traffic for swimming pool and straight on A316 pedestrian crossing. Two low hanging trees 100% block visibility of left side straight on red light until very close to crossing, trees also block visibility of green for much of the approach. Approaching in left lane, nothing in front, with tall traffic to right, seeing vehicle red light at crossing is far too late for comfort.
With the tree that is closest to traffic light, obviously seeing red is more of an issue as higher but a driver barely sees the green between trees. If it changes to red during this blocked vision, the crossing is worthless. Maintenance needed here.
