Excessive Delay for Pedestrian/Cyclist Phase

Reported anonymously at 23:08, Sat 1 May 2021

The toucan crossing of Avenue Road (crossing the eastbound lane) at the Coton Arches presents an excessive delay for pedestrians and cyclists. On a recent test, it was timed as taking 1:50 (one minute, fifty seconds) between activation of the request to cross, and the green signal being presented (see included video stills showing timings). This was despite no approaching motor vehicle traffic for over one minute since activation. This is extremely likely to cause pedestrians and cyclists to ignore the controlled crossing. Crossings should be prioritising pedestrian and cyclist movments and as such, motor traffic flows should be monitored and a green signal on the toucan given by default to pedestrians/cyclists where no approaching motor vehicles are detected, or after a maximum wait duration at peak times when gaps in motor traffic flows are reduced and the crossing request is activated/persons waiting to cross are detected. Video evidence of the delay is available on request. [BB]
