Need a pedestrian crossing

Reported via mobile in the General highways enquiry category anonymously at 22:24, Thursday 16 June 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

There is no pedestrian/cycle crossing at these traffic lights and the timings do not allow much time (nor is there good visibility) for many people to cross safely

  • We are aware of the lack of pedestrian/cycle crossings at this junction and have received similar reports/requests over the years. Unfortunately this kind of layout is fairly common at old signal sites like these as they were designed around 30 years ago when the design standards and road hierarchy were different to now.

    If we were to refurbish the signals now we would include some pedestrian crossings, however although this junction is old, there are unfortunately plenty of other sites in Bristol that are even older and are ahead of the queue on our Capital Signal Refurbishment programme.

    As such we would not be looking to refurbish these signals for at least another 5 years or so. Over the years there have been other potential schemes/pots of money that would have paid for it, but nothing that has materialised to date. Currently the best looking opportunity for potential funding is the East Bristol Liveable Neighbourhood scheme, part of which is to improve the key connections into/out of the area.

    We would not condone increasing the intergreen between the traffic phases as this creates ambiguity between all users of the junction.
