Pedestrian crossing light missing 3 months

Reported via mobile in the All out category by Ben Rodgers at 09:36, Monday 5 September 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3802753.

The light was destroyed in a road traffic collision nearly three months ago and still has not been replaced. Children use this crossing and it is not safe without the pedestrian signal. There is a hole in the ground where the post should be and this has been piled up with red/white barriers and traffic cones, which are a tripping hazard right outside a busy supermarket.

  • You have had over 3 weeks since my report in which to fix these lights. In the last 24-48 hours you have placed a “crossing not in use” sign over the pedestrian push-button box on the western side of the crossing. It is unrealistic to expect pedestrians to not cross here. By covering the pedestrian push-button box, you have made the crossing MORE dangerous for pedestrians, since the “WAIT” light now cannot be seen lighting and extinguishing. The traffic cones piled up outside the supermarket have got worse. This is a complex junction with cycle lanes on three sides. It is not safe without the signalling it was designed to have. Someone is going to get hurt here if you don’t fix these lights. Within 500m of these lights there are schools attended by 2,500 children.
