Fix My Dunstable Street

DANGER - traffic lights missing, 7th March

The traffic light array in the middle of the road at the south end of the A5/A505 junction has been missing for some weeks. All that takes its place are three traffic cones. Traffic going north on the A5 to turn right into the A505 can only see the lights if: (a) it is in the front of the queue or (b) if the vehicles in front of it have windows to allow sight of the lights. A car driver following a bus, van or truck cannot see the lights on the north side of the junction until they are well over the white line. Traffic at the head of the queue waiting to enter the junction from the A505 cannot see the lights. I witnessed a foreign registered truck on the A5 southbound who mistook the pedestrian lights beyond the junction for lights for the junction and proceeded across the A505 against the red light for the southbound traffic. It was astonishing that there wasn't a major accident. In fact it's amazing there haven't been all sorts of fatal, or near fatal, accidents.

Pedestrian button not working opposite a school., 31st January

For over two weeks the pedestrian button on a traffic light has not been working on the Union Street side of High Street North. It is opposite a school, and is used daily by dozens of young children. It is a busy crossing also used regularly by the elderly, people in wheelchairs and mobility scooters and young parents, many with baby buggies. This is an extremely busy road, so this needs urgent attention.
