Traffic light pointing in wrong direction after impact
Reported via mobile in the Damage - pole leaning / equipment detached from pole/facing the wrong direction category anonymously at 19:14, Saturday 1 January 2022
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3209404.
Image shows traffic lights at junction pf A205 South Circular and Croxted Road SE21.
Traffic light on right hand side should face East to direct Westbound traffic on A205. Instead it is perpendicular to its intended direction and it faces south. It looks like it has been struck by Eastbound traffic.
Red/amber/green lights all seem to be working - just pointing the wrong way!
