A General Fault problem has been found

Reported via desktop in the General Fault category anonymously at 14:01, Tuesday 14 September 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3000520.

Report from member of public on 13th September: The sensors for the cycle crossing traffic lights at the junction of Palmerston Road and the north circular are not working. I waited for a very long time travelling both north and south on a bike and the lights didn’t change. They do work on foot if you press the button, but the sensors for bikes don’t work. This is dangerous as cyclists have to try and cross without a red light to stop traffic once they give up waiting.

Direction of Travel: Crossing North Circular

Date of Travel: 13/09/2021
