Question

Barnet Council reported to the Hendon Area Forum that "The traffic light changes are being monitored by transport for London (TfL) as part of a trial that has been extended from the original six months to the end of May 14 to try to obtain representative data allowing for seasonal variation. TfLs monitoring to date suggests that queue lengths have increased on most approaches and their customer centre has received mainly negative comments about the trial. The borough is not carrying out independent monitoring although officers have received a small number of positive comments."  How many a) negative and b) positive comments have been received about the changes to the lights; and will you confirm that the lights will not be changed back at the end of the trial period?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL's last count shows 46 positive comments and 19 negative comments have been received regarding the traffic light changes at Stirling Corner.

The current trial involving existing signal changes from part time signals to full time signals is ongoing and a review will be carried out in June/July this year. The outcome of this review will determine continuity of the current signal arrangements and/or the need for any other measures.
