Traffic light 'tree' that once shone its lights at Westferry Roundabout

The iconic ‘Traffic Light’ tree that sometimes confused motorists approaching the Westferry roundabout leading onto the Isle of Dogs looks like making a comeback at Canary Wharf.

The multiple-facing assortment of red, amber and green signals have been in storage since they were removed when the two-tier roundabout was redeveloped just over a year ago.

But now Tower Hamlets Council has received a planning application to reinstall the light show artwork at the Trafalgar Way roundabout near Billingsgate Market at the other end of Canary Wharf.

A public consultation is planned by the council at the end of the month.
