'No reason' to install 24-hour traffic lights at Stirling Corner, say TfL
Transport bosses say there is “no reason” to install round-the-clock signalling in Stirling Corner.
Earlier this week, London Labour Assembly Member Andrew Dismore launched a safety survey into the area.
Campaigners called the roundabout, which links London, Barnet and Borheamwood, “crazily dangerous” because a number of car accidents, including one fatality, have occured there.
Alan Bristow, director and Transport for London, TfL, said the firm had carried out detailed research into the traffic signalling at Stirling Corner.
He added: “The results of this study, combined with the fact there have been no pedestrian or cyclist collisions at this location during the last three years, show there is no reason to alter the current arrangements at this spot.
“TfL does of course keep all the parts of the road network under review and will continue to monitor Stirling Corner.”
Mr Bristow stressed the fact that in spring of this year, TfL carried out improvement works to resurface the road, amend lane markings and reline the roundabout.
The traffic lights are currently in operation between 3.30pm and 6.30pm, and Mr Bristow said they will stay on at this time to control traffic driving towards London.
