  • Traffic lights cut down

  • The lights are still not repaired more than 24 hours later and the junction is very dangerous

  • I believe there was a car accident today due to the lights still not working. This is an extremely busy junction and the lights need to be fixed immediately or at least temporary lights put up before there is another accident.

  • Lights are still out. Very dangerous. Shocking that the lights haven’t been fixed or temporary lights put in place. Accident waiting to happen. Very dangerous for pedestrians.

  • The vandalism here, on Willow Grove and on Plaistow Lane is presenting a major risk to public safety. There should be temporary lights in place at all three sites.

  • We urgently need temporary traffic lights please, this is extremely dangerous, we live outside the junction and have witness numerous accidents, near misses and have had significant challenges crossing the road. It is too busy a junction to leave without a temporary solution

  • These traffic lights are still lying face down in the street - over a week after the incident. What on earth are TFL waiting for??. . this junction (along with other junctions across Chislehurst that have suffered the same vandalism over recent days) are incredibly busy. It’s only a matter of time before people are seriously hurt or killed in major accidents. Your complete lack of action, beggars belief. Get it sorted asap, .

  • These traffic lights are still not working! Why they didn’t install temporary lights instead risking people’s lives.

  • Multiple accidents and near misses at this junction this week, taking this from inaction to corporate neglect. Someone will be killed driving or crossing on foot at this junction. There need to be temporary traffic lights installed immediately to save lives.
