Wait button works but car stop light doesn’t change

Reported via mobile in the Pedestrian wait button not working category anonymously at 13:57, Fri 5 November 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3106461.

Fortess Road traffic lights right outside Eleanor Palmer Primary School.

At 13:18pm I waited for over 5 mins after pressing Wait button, lights finally changed and I could cross in the green man.

At 13:42 the Wait button was already pressed but people crossing and saying “lights weren’t working”. As I have small child, I waited for green man signal, I waited at least another 4 minutes after seeing lots of people cross on red man signal. Eventually I crossed in a quiet part of the traffic, still on red man. Green man never came on, Wait button remained illuminated.
