I’ve got a number of sites with Type 0 appearance ped phases, particularly on retail park entrances which obviously run for very long periods overnight.

Out of 60 sites with ped facilities on, I have had three cone failures in 30 months – all were on phases which are generally stop/start in nature. The tactiles that are on Type 0 phases which run green man extensively are about six to eight now (as old as the sites) without any recorded failures.

I know we might be a bit cooler in climate up North, but I don’t think by that much! :-)
