Question

Are you aware of the serious traffic problems at Apex Corner N.W.7 since the re-phasing of your traffic lights?  I have never known a situation as bad as the present. There are constantly long queues of traffic going down to Mill Hill Circus and the roundabout is gridlocked. This occurs at throughout the day and not just at rush hour and also at weekends. What are you going to do about it?

Dynamic traffic signal detection equipment was installed at Apex Corner in early September. Following this, I am advised by TfL that there were a series of faults with the equipment which affected network performance. TfL apologises for the inconvenience and frustration this caused. I am advised that the faults have now been rectified and Traffic Signal Engineers have and continue to adjust the signal timings to achieve the best balance at this location.
