New Pedestrian Crossing Station Road Standon.

The new Puffin crossing is now in operation and is being monitored by Ringway to ensure it is operating correctly. Our road safety team is sending the attached leaflet to local schools as well.

Following the commissioning of the traffic signals there has been an enquiry regarding the crossing time and there not being sufficient time to cross the road. I think that this is probably a lack of understanding as to how the pedestrian crossings work. The Green Man time is an Invitation to commence crossing and it is not supposed to see you all the way across. At the end of the Green Man period sensors detect whether there are people on the crossing and extend the clearance time to allow the user to complete their crossing before releasing the traffic.
