Yesterday the Pelican crossing at the juction of Blackfriars Road
and Webber Street
was fitted with an audible signal.
While I fully appreciate the benifit of this signal for visually impaired pedestrians, it just seems really loud. I live on the third floor (not facing the road) my bedroom window must be at least 100m from the junction, and yet I could clearly hear the sound as I was trying to get to sleep last night. (Around 23:30)
Having found a Department of Transport document online, it appears that in residential areas the sounds can be switched off at night. I have written tio TFL with this sugestion.
My reason for posting - Has anyone else had any experience of this kind of thing?
