Pedestrian Countdown Now At Stratford Station

Transport for London's rollout of pedestrian crossing countdown timers has reached Stratford, with one newly-installed outside the station.

The timers have a digital display showing how long pedestrians have to cross the road. Previously trialled from 2010, the crossing received a very positive response with 83% of pedestrians saying they liked the idea.

The Stratford crossing is one of eight which TfL plan to install before the Olympics; you can see further proposed sites here. By 2014, there will be around 200 countdown crossings.

If you're a regular road-crosser outside Stratford station, let us know in the comments if the countdown makes a difference to you.
