Answer for Economic Impact of Traffic Signals

Answered By: 
The Mayor

This report examines the general costs of delay to road traffic at traffic signals and does not explicitly consider pedestrians and cyclists. Therefore this report will not have any direct impact on TfL's approach to either of these road users. I am determined that any changes to traffic lights as part of ongoing TfL initiatives would not jeopardise the safety of pedestrians and cyclists.
