Is a two min wait at pedestrian crossings acceptable?

TfL are still tweaking the details of the gyratory re-design after the latest consultation results. Issues are pollution, rat running, pedestrian and cyclist safety etc.

Slightly disconcerting is TfL’s insistence that pedestrian and cyclist safety will be improved while they nevertheless want to see pedestrians in future wait at crossings for even longer at busy periods – up to 119 seconds (i.e. almost two minutes) – and cyclists will wait for up to 65 seconds – both well above the internationally recognised safe limit of 40 seconds.
