The Pelican Crossing seems to be switched off at night

Reported via mobile in the Pedestrian wait button not working category anonymously at 21:48, Wed 8 November 2023

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS5190506.

While the crossing works well during the day and the buttons work, it does not work at night. If I am coming back from railway station after about 7pm, the lights are not operational leading to people dashing across the road . Last Sunday, they weren’t working at 18.17 pm. It’s especially bad as there are no bus stops at West Drayton station at the moment and people are trying to cross with luggage to get to the Ferrers Avenue bus stop.This has been happening for over a year now. Is somebody manually switching these lights off ? I can understand that the crossing noise is switched off during the night but in this case the crossing is not operational and it makes me feel unsafe walking home.
