And finally… here’s a chance for you to offer suggestions to improve pedestrian crossing timings.

Living Streets have collaborated with TfL on changing the timings of
pedestrian crossings throughout London. One in our patch which has been
treated is on Tottenham High Road near St. Loy’s Road. Living Streets are
now asking for others to be nominated. If you know of one you might like to
respond to this invitation. Please note the details they require. Let me
know if you respond –


 INVITATION to recommend some Signalised Pedestrian Crossings for possible
reduction in WAIT TIMES this coming year (2019)

London Living Streets has been invited by TfL’s Signals Engineering Team to
nominate 60 to 70 Signalised Pedestrian Crossings-either Stand Alone or at
Junctions – that we regard as in need of significant reductions in Wait
Times (between pressing the button and the Green Man coming on). This is the
most immediate practical outcome of our recent Pedestrian Crossings Survey
that you  helped conduct in September/October on 12 sample crossings in

The Engineers want London Living Streets to submit as soon as possible a
consolidated list of the crossings you recommend where Wait Times should be
reviewed and reduced.

Could you please send us your recommendations of Crossings as soon as
possible; but in any case by Monday 10 December?

The Signalised Pedestrian Crossings you recommend for Wait Times to be
reduced can be either Stand Alone Crossings or Crossings at Junctions.

The information we need from you for each crossing you recommend is:

1.      Precise location of the Crossing: Name of street on which Crossing
is located; name of nearest side street; and if possible Postcode (e.g.
2.      Current Wait Times: It would be helpful if you visited the crossing
and recorded, and send us, the no. of seconds between your pressing the
Button and the Green Man switching on. Do this 2 or 3 times to make sure you
have it roughly right. Also mention the time of day you recorded the Wait
Time (since this may vary over a 24 hour period).
3.      A line or two of additional information: You might want to mention,
for example, that it is a shopping street, or a crossing leading to a nearby
bus stop or Tube or Rail Station, or used by schoolchildren, or hospital
patients etc etc.

Mike and I will compile a consolidated list from the recommendations
everyone sends us. This is a lovely opportunity for us Londoners to get Wait
Times reduced on a selection of London Crossings.

Please let us know if you will be sending us one or more recommendations.

Warm regards,
Robert Molteno and Mike Grahn
