I understand why (although disagree with) underpasses have been removed from Elephant and I don't mind too much having to wait a few minutes for the traffic light in order to cross the road (West / East on Newington Butts).
What really annoys me is that after waiting for minutes I can only cross HALF of the road. Is there a particular reason why they can't synchronise the traffic lights so we can cross in one go?
There was a similar silly crossing in Upper Thames Street by Cousin Lane. If they've fixed it there surely it can be done in Elephant too?
