Traffic lights

We design, inspect and maintain traffic lights at junctions and pedestrian crossings across Cheshire East.

Report a traffic light issue

You can report a traffic light issue online.

Before you report a traffic light issue

For concerns about pedestrian crossing timings or beeps, see pedestrian crossings

After you report a traffic light issue

After you report a traffic light issue, we will get to the site within:

  • 2 hours if all lights are out at a junction or when emergency action is needed
  • 2 contract hours* if all lights are out at a pedestrian crossing
  • 6 contract hours* if just a red light is out or a push button isn't working
  • 12 contract hours* if just an amber or green light is out

*A contract hour is any hour between 7.30am and 7pm. So for example, if you report a red light out at 4pm, we will be there by 10.30am the next morning.
