Around 50 pedestrian traffic signals around Trafalgar Square will have their ‘walk’ image replaced with new diversity images as part of the celebrations for Pride in London. The familiar green walking symbol has been replaced with either green gender related symbols or a new ‘holding hands’ design.
The traffic signals have been designed to show TfL’s support for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT+) diversity in London. They are inspired by a similar set of traffic signals that were produced in Vienna last year.
There will be seven special designs to represent LGBT+ relationships, including a holding hands symbol and the widely recognised trans symbol. The unique traffic signals – designed in-house at TfL – will be installed in London overnight by Siemens free of charge on the 19 June.
