Video: CBD countdown timers aren’t working, just weeks after installation

Just three weeks after installation, the much-heralded CBD pedestrian crossing countdown timers appear to be malfunctioning.

The timers were installed at the intersection of Spencer and Collins street in mid July.

VicRoads provided Mornings with the following statement:

Due to a minor technical issue, the pedestrian countdown timers at Spencer Street and Collins Street intersection were not functioning as they should this morning

VicRoads engineers have inspected the site and the timers are now operating correctly.
