Reported via mobile in the General Fault category anonymously at 21:22, Sun 21 August 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3770868.

The traffic lights at the very north end of Royal College (heading North) seem to keep getting skipped in the sequence, after the signal for pedestrians to cross. It should go green for us, but then the Kentish Town Road Traffic goes again and again. Sometimes it’s the 3rd of 4th time before they go green. This happens most days I use this junction. Even cars are now going through the red light as they get fed up with waiting. It really seems like this is a fault. Thanks for looking in to this.

  • This light is permanently stuck on red but the green man function works. I nearly got run over because those cars just go through the red light. This has been going on for weeks now
