TfL’s signals engineers are again inviting London Living Streets to send in lists of signalised pedestrian crossings that need wait times reduced. This is part of TfL’s Signal Timing Review Programme.
In the first half of 2019-20, TfL reviewed 606 signals, including half the crossings that London Living Streets nominated. At 225 of these crossings, this has saved pedestrians a total of 1,256 hours a day (number of minutes of reduced wait time over 24 hours x number of people using the crossing).
Crossings nominated by London Living Street members where TfL has delivered positive results include:
- Commercial Street by Wentworth Street – wait times halved over the last 12 months.
- East Finchley Station, Barnet – wait times reduced by enabling near instant pedestrian stage response when a qualifying vehicle green period has expired.
- Clifford Roundabout, Lewisham – wait times reduced from around 60 to 30 seconds.
Other locations such as Little Ben in Victoria, Great Cambridge Road, Chiswick High Road and Shooter Hill Road have all seen wait times reduce due to our nominations.
If you have any candidate crossings, please send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 10 January 2020.
