Wandsworth Council has done all infrastructure work for installation of signals-controlled pelican crossing (a pair of poles each with a standard set of traffic lights facing oncoming traffic, a push button and two illuminated “green men”).

Only Transport for London can actually install the lights and they are currently very busy. However it could happen within a month.

It follows a successful campaign from Wandsworth Living Street on the case for a pedestrian crossing at the Brighton Yard entrance to Clapham Junction Station:

A Council officer commented that it would have been better to move the traffic lights from St John’s Hill entrance as there will be now 5 traffic lights (Falcon Road and St John’s Hill) to synchronise all together, with the two on St John’s Hill at close distance.
