All signal locations in London meet the Department for Transport (DfT) guidance applicable at the time of their installation. The national accessibility standards for new pedestrian crossings can change and, in line with accepted practice across the country, TfL is working to bring all its signals up to current standards through its rolling signals modernisation programme.

There are now 15 locations in Haringey which do not have either tactile or audible indicators fitted.

The following sites will be made compliant by end of 2012/13: Lordship Lane - Roundway - Downhills Way Ferry Lane - The Hale - Broad Lane Bounds Green Road - Park Avenue Ferry Lane - Hale Road Hale Road - Watermead Way

The remaining sites will be upgraded by 2015/16 at the very latest, as TfL has undertaken to ensure that all signalised locations which have signalised pedestrian crossings will have either tactile or audible indicators fitted by the end of the financial year 2015/16. They are as follows:

Fortis Green Road - Queens Avenue - Tetherdown High Road Tottenham - Bruce Gorve Green Lanes - St Anns Road Turnpike Lane - Alexander Road Green Lanes - Turnpike Lane Archway Road by Langdon Park Road High Road Woodgreen by Buller Road Bounds Green Road by Passmore Gardens Bounds Green Road by Tewkesbury Terrace Hornsey Park Road - Claredon Road
