Question

Further to Question No: 2013/4181

"What is the outcome of the 24/7 traffic light operation experiment at Stirling Corner?"  your response being:  "The trial at Stirling Corner has been undertaken to assess possible safety and performance benefits of using full-time instead of part-time signals.

Initial results have shown that the full-time signalisation has addressed the original request from Barnet councillors and local residents to improve the east/west access to the roundabout. However, further analysis is needed to fully measure the benefits at this location.

The initial six-month trial was extended to take account of seasonal variation and to facilitate the collection of more data. TfL teams are meeting on a regular basis to review the trial and any future long term design options for Stirling Corner."

For how long has the trial been extended? When will the further analysis be completed and when will the results be published?

The Stirling Corner trial was extended in September 2013 for a further six months until early April 2014. This will account for any seasonal variation in traffic flows and to allow for the collection of all necessary data to ensure that appropriate conclusions can be drawn.

A full assessment of the data will be carried out following completion of the trial.
