  • Thank you for your recent report. Unfortunately the signals team are not responsible for the upkeep of the barrier but have raised a FMS for this to be looked at. An Engineer has however attended site and fixed the problem with the push button unit. The built in delay after the green man extinguishes enables slower pedestrians to cross before the conflicting traffic receives a green signal.
