Countdown safety warning dismissed as 'nonsense'
Transport for London (TfL) has insisted that pedestrian safety is paramount to its proposals to introduce pedestrian countdown at some London crossings (Surveyor, 19 March).
A TfL spokesman said the organisation is looking at technology used in San Francisco, which achieved a quarter reduction in pedestrian collisions.
TfL is reviewing the capital’s traffic signals as part of mayor Boris Johnson’s election manifesto pledge to smooth traffic flow in the city. Since July 2008, traffic signal timings at 150 sites have been altered and TfL has written to the DfT for permission to trial the signals.
