Red Traffic Light Jumping - Marsh Wall & Westferry Road

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 18:02, Thu 1 November 2018

Sent to Tower Hamlets Borough Council 3 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 1451368.

Cars and lorries frequently jumping red traffic lights on both Marsh Wall and Westferry Road crossings and endangering pedestrians lives on a daily basis. Drivers seem to ignore or don’t even see the approaching crossing and often drive straight through both on red, even when pedestrians are starting to cross. People with limited mobility, sensory difficulties, wheelchair and child buggy users are at particular risk at these crossings as there is nowhere else safe to cross at this location. A minimum of more signage on the approach to the crossings is needed or alternatively cameras on the crossings should to be installed ASAP to protect against an avoidable fatality.

  • Traffic still driving straight through red lights on Marsh Wall - latest incident in 22.11.18. A collision with a pedestrian is inevitable at this junction unless it is addresses by TFL or Tower Hamlets Council - to date no response from either (24.11.18).
