Timing of pedestrian lights too long to change

Reported via desktop in the Traffic Lights (permanent only) category by Nigel Couchman at 08:58, Wednesday 25 January 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The pedestrian lights are set too long to change for pedestrians. We have to wait minutes in freezing cold or rain while vehicles with roofs and heaters flow past. The average speed of traffic is only 2x walking and LESS than cyclists. So why are you still pandering to lazy motorists. Change the timing so lights respond and change in favour of pedestrians much more quickly.

  • Thank you for recently contacting Oxfordshire County Council regarding the Bath St/Stratton Way pedestrian crossing. Due to its location, the operation of this crossing is linked to the nearby signalised junctions (Ock St/Stratton Way and Stratton Way/Vineyard) and is the reason why the maximum wait time for pedestrians is higher than usual. The maximum wait time at this crossing is 60 seconds. Coordinating the signals helps to clear vehicles from along Stratton Way where there are several bus stops which benefit from this. There are no current plans to change the operation of the signals but we will continue to monitor them.
