Long delay for pedestrians

Reported in the Traffic lights category anonymously at 14:27, Thu 24 March 2011

Sent to Ipswich Borough Council 2 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 175457.

The pedestrian crossing outside the college generally takes 80 seconds to respond to a crossing request and then only gives 18 seconds for people to cross. Can this dwell time be reduced please. I have written about this in more detail here: 2011/ 03/ 24/ pedestrians-get-only-18-of-the-time-at-busy-pedestrian-crossing/

  • There isn't a crossing point at the point indicated on the map -- the crossing by the Lord Nelson (nearest to the West) is surprisingly quick to respond, and the nearest crossing to the West at junction of Grimwade Street is a zebra crossing, so has no dwell time?

  • Sorry, I ended up with the pin in slightly the wrong place. The crossing in question is to the one opposite the College the other side of the A1158. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way to move the pin.

  • Just to say that I have not had any response from the Borough Council on this matter yet. I will give my local councilor a poke.

  • I have not had any response to this issue from Ipswich Borough Council which is disappointing.

  • Still no response! I will prod them from some other directions and will report here with anything that happens.

  • The timing of this crossing is now a lot better. Pretty variable but often 20-40 seconds.
