Loud beeping noise audible in my home from pedestrian crossing
Reported via desktop in the General Fault category anonymously at 12:08, Tue 3 October 2023
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS5056579.
At the intersection of Old Brompton Road and Drayton Gardens, there is a new traffic crossing that has a 45 second cycle, that beeps extremely loudly, day and night, weekday and weekend. The continuous cycling loud beeping sound is decreasing our quality of life, harming wellbeing and ability to relax in our garden, sleep, or work in my home office, or have our windows open. We hear it even when the windows are closed. Please 1) turn it off 2) only enable beeping if strictly required if there is a person crossing 3) if the beeping needs to occur then turn the volume down very significantly. 4) prevent beeping on early mornings, evenings and night-time. Thank you for your consideration and I would welcome a response within 5 business days.
