Council look for new home for Traffic Light Tree
Ideas for the future home of the Traffic Light Tree are being sought by Tower Hamlets Council.
The iconic sculpture was removed from Westferry Road as part of a redevelopment of the Heron Quay roundabout and the council said the much-loved piece of art is currently in storage until a suitable new site is found.
Tower Hamlet's head of service, transport and highways Margaret Cooper said: "We know that the lights are held in great affection on the Isle of Dogs.
"The move was necessary to facilitate the road improvements in the area.
"The council is looking to relocate the lights to a new site and welcomes resident's suggestions for a new location."
To make a suggestion email firstname.lastname@example.org with "Westferry Traffic Lights Tree relocation" in the title. Submissions will be heard until January 11.
Conservative Isle of Dogs councillor Gloria Thienel is also collecting views on the future of the Traffic Light Tree. Email her at email@example.com
