Question

Six years ago TfL installed traffic lights at the junction of Woodcote Road and Beddington Gardens in my constituency. This has significantly reduced the air quality in Woodcote Road. Will the Mayor therefore instruct TfL to remove these traffic lights?

TfL is unaware of any evidence to suggest that air quality has been reduced in the area because of traffic signals. However, TfL is more than happy to discuss with the London Borough of Sutton the removal of any signals which they believe are no longer required, and I am aware that TfL is already engaged in similar discussions with London Borough of Bexley and other Boroughs at their request. I will ask TfL officers to contact the Borough to discuss this junction.
