Damaged pedestrian crossing lights

Reported via mobile in the Flashing signs category anonymously at 22:49, Mon 4 October 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 362195.

The pedestrian crossing lights near 87 Stanbridge Road Leighton Buzzard have been turned from a facing traffic position by up to 45 degrees on the North side and possibly more on the opposite side so that traffic view of the lights can be reduced leading to possible injury to pedestrians. If this is not the council's responsibility I hope you will pass this on to the relevant authority as this is the first crossing from the start of Stanbridge Road for pedestrians including school children.

  • Passed these pedestrian crossing lights that should be pointed to oncoming traffic but are still als first reported, the lights on the right side for traffic along Stanbridge road travelling into Leighton Buzzard are still at about 45 degrees clockwise from the line of the road, while the lights on the other side are not as bad but not perfect. Both lights can be seen by drivers but may not be optimally directed such that they may not be seen as early.
