Question

The traffic signal controlling the left turn filter lane from the Eastern Avenue into Horns Road displays a green signal before traffic from Ley Street into Horns Road is given a red signal. Will the Mayor instruct TfL to re-phase the left turn filter lane light to only show a green light when the main Eastern Avenue lights showed green?

There is a give-way line for traffic using the left turn from East Avenue in to Horns Road which should ensure the junction functions correctly. However, in response to your question, TfL visited the junction and observed that some drivers failed to observe the give-way line. In the light of this, TfL has updated the timings at this site to remove any potential conflicts.
