Temporary traffic lights

Reported via Android in the Traffic lights category anonymously at 16:30, Saturday 19 January 2019

Sent to TfL 5 minutes later

The temporary traffic lights that were present on Market Square/ Widmore road / east Street need discommisioning and removing.

People are pressing the button to cross on the temporary traffic lights which is showing a green man and making the crossing sound.

They are not in sync with the actual traffic lights so that people are crossing when they think they have the green man when in reality the traffic still sees a green light and is proceeding.

  • I've reported it on fix my Street and have tried to call the council and TFL but both lines are coming up as closed. The TFL one gives you the option of speaking to someone if it's an emergency but it just cuts out if you choose that option.

    I've called Thames water who carried out the works and asked them to remove the lights. The lady said she would find the department responsible and inform them.

    I've also informed Bromley CCTV and asked them to keep cameras defaulted on the area if possible in case there is an accident.
