picresized_1278060655_47fe9dee1cc6f3fb4ed420ebf56aefac.jpg TfL have created a list of 145 sets of traffic lights that could be removed. They reckon these lights aren't useful any more and taking them away would ease congestion. However, around half these 'un-useful' lights are pedestrian crossings, and while Tooley Street could definitely do with a spot of tidying up we've spotted a few locally that are on roads with barely any congestion at all. Blogger Adam Bienkov has provided a PDF of all the locations - take a look and see if any are near you. These aren't set in stone yet, so there's still a chance to make objections heard. Update: there's now a Google map of all proposed locations. (Photo / Beachy)
