Installing traffic lights

Traffic lights can be very good at controlling traffic and giving pedestrians a better opportunity to safely cross the road.

If you would like Bromley Council to consider adding lights to a junction or road within the borough, then please contact us with the exact location and reason for your request. An engineer will consider your request and get back to you.
