Changed timing causing huge traffic jams in Fulham
This issue was resolved two weeks ago but this morning the lights have been changed causing massive jams particularly in and out of Putney Bridge Bus Station. The timing of southbound light at the southern end of Putney Bridge was changed in August so that when the northbound light changes there is a 17 second delay before southbound turns green. This was never true before. In the rush hour miles of jams are a result along new King’s Road, Fulham High St, Fulham Rd and surrounding areas. Delays to buses, pollution and ambulance delays as a result. There seems no reason for this, there is a bus lane southbound so its not helping those buses but causing up too 30 minute delays for any bus approaching Putney or Putney Bridge bus station.
