Pedestrian signal on traffic lights SO LOUD!’

Reported via mobile in the General Fault category anonymously at 05:28, Fri 5 August 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3732021.

The traffic lights at the junction of Lynton and Dunton road are turned up so loud they can be heard inside with windows shut three roads down. They sound like a smoke alarm & it’s distressing being woken up by that noise. It’s even louder when it’s busy and all 4 sets are beeping away…. Please turn them down (obviously to a safe level for those who are visually impaired standing at the crossing rather than the hearing impaired standing in tower hamlets) thanks

  • Twenty eight days?! The hottest year on record, windows have to stay open and it’s not good for ears to wear earplugs or headphones 24 hours a day. No one can put up with that high pitched beeping that sounds too much like a smoke alarm for it not to cause residents anxiety. Why is it going to take a contractor 28 days to turn down the beeping on temp traffic lights?!? It must be double hell for the people living at the start of lynton road. It may be a non urgent fault but the need to sleep urgent and any sleep deprivation consequences for those in the area affected lie squarely at TFLs feet.
