The traffic lights at crendon street crossing

Reported in the Traffic lights & crossings problems with timings category anonymously at 15:01, Thursday 16 January 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

There are 2 pedestrian crossings either side of the crossroads on crendon street but only traffic lights facing one set of oncoming traffic. Presumably the plan was for cars to be stopped at earlier traffic lights but due to the continuous queue going up crendon street to the station cars may pass through the first set of traffic lights on green and then be stuck in the middle of the crossing not knowing that the pedestrian light had gone green as there are no traffic lights to tell them. This is the same for the crossing in the opposite direction. As a pedestrian I was almost hit by a bus when it was my right of way as they had no traffic lights to let them know not to pass through the pedestrian crossing. This issue has been there since the roadworks creating the new junction but did not seem to foresee this issue. More traffic lights are needed to inform drivers when the pedestrian crossings are green and when they cannot go across them.
