I have led the creation of work placements to help ex-Armed Forces personnel who may be wounded, injured or sick into employment.

TfL and the Poppy Factory work together to get ex-Service members back into employment. TfL has been working with the Armed Forces resettlement support groups and Remploy to create paid work placements to help ex-Armed Forces members - who may be wounded, injured or sick - back into employment. The placements have been extremely successful with the vast majority of people taking part securing permanent employment.

London's Transport Commissioner, Mike Brown MVO, said: `Our ex-Service placement scheme has been extremely successful, and we're delighted that, together with our suppliers, we're going to help even more former Armed Forces members back into employment. We have an engineering skills shortage in the transport industry and the scheme is helping us benefit from the skills these brave men and women gain during their careers in the Armed Forces.'

A website where traffic signal timing diagrams can be produced. Generate traffic signal timing diagrams to determine green running times.

By entering basic detail of a traffic signal site. Such as :- Site Address (used in the title of the diagrams); Phases; Stage names and phases in stages; Intergreens; Phase delays (only phase delay leaving at this point); Diagrams

Once all details of the site have been entered a report can be generated. The report is centered around the one or more diagrams requested. At the moment the entering of a required diagram is simplistic.

The cycle time is entered followed by a number of forced stage movements to occur during the cycle. A minimum cycle time can be generated by using a cycle time of zero, together with the stage moves in order.
