Timing review for pedestrian crossing
Reported in the Request Timing Review category by Christiaan de Haes at 16:45, Fri 4 October 2019
Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1792961.
This pedestrian crossing is used by lots of young people just before school in the morning (say 8-9am) and after school (say 3-4pm). I feel it is dangerous too keep these young people waiting for a long time on their way to/from school and am wondering if it is possible to shorten the waiting time to discourage them from walking across the road in busy traffic. There doesn't appear to be a link to any traffic lights in the proximity. also, over the weekend, when there is much less traffic around, the waiting is very long too, maybe that could be reviewed as well? Thanks for your consideration, Christiaan de Haes

Thank you for your notification.The pedestrian crossing at this location is linked to other sites within vicinity during the morning and evening peak periods as this is a key route. This incorporates all of the Junctions and Crossings between Burleigh Road and Regents Square. The maximum waiting time for pedestrians during busy periods is 40 Seconds which is in line with National Standards. We will continue to monitor the operation of the signals and the waiting times and review as required.
