Traffic lights

Traffic lights are used to ensure the safety of drivers and pedestrians and also to control the flow of traffic.

Traffic conditions are monitored using CCTV and Traffic Management Systems in order to allow appropriate changes to traffic signal timings to suit live traffic conditions. Traffic related messages can be displayed on the Traffic Information Signs at various locations throughout the borough to inform road users of a variety of planned events or live incidents that may have an impact on the highway network.

The traffic lights used in Telford and Wrekin are controlled in a number of different ways:

  • fixed time plans
  • vehicle actuated
  • cableless linking facility
  • urban traffic control
  • split cycle offset optimisation technique.

Temporary traffic lights fault

If the fault is with a set of temporary signals there should be a courtesy board with the signal that has the contact details for the contractor. Please contact the contractor directly. Complete our online form to report the problem with a temporary traffic light, if there is no courtesy board.
