You asked

Dear Transport for London, This is a request for information under The Freedom of Information Act 2000. I write in respect of the traffic lights at the Burdett Road / Commercial Road box junction, Tower Hamlets, London E14 7HA. I would like details of the current programming and phasing of these lights, specifically the amount of time allocated to the signal phases for the progress of Northbound traffic travelling from the A1261 North onto the A1205 and then the gap between the red experienced by the Northbound traffic and the progression of the Eastbound traffic travelling East on the A13. The Eastbound traffic progression follows the Northbound traffic. The time period I am interested in is between 6pm and 8pm on Fridays. The specific date I am interested in 24th May 2019, so the light timings for that specific day are what I need.
