The lights never turn green for pedestrians to cross.

Reported via mobile in the Pedestrian wait button not working category anonymously at 14:19, Sunday 18 September 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3832729.

The lights do not turn green for pedestrians to cross. This is leading to people running out into the road in order to cross. I am not sure how long this has been an issue, but I believe only a few days.

  • This street light is not changing properly as of 23rd September AM. The light to go forward on Walworth road is green for less than a few seconds creating traffic for more than one mile back. It takes from Westmoreland road to the roundabout more than 30 minutes on the bus for about a 6 min normal journey. Traffic is still bad. Please fix!

  • This light issue was resolved somehow last last week, but already today 6 October — the light does not stay green for more than 3 seconds creating a huge backlog of traffic on Walworth road and the surrounding bus routes (like 343)…. With all of the roads around it closed, this is a huge bottle neck. Please 🙏 hoping this gets looked at it. It is making bus journeys unbearable
