TfL installed yesterday the specially designed symbols as part of International Women’s Day.



They said the switch was aimed at “recognising the contribution women make to all aspects of society”.

The new signals feature women in different shapes and sizes.

“It is important we commemorate the hard work, contributions and success of women across London every day and even more so on International Women’s Day.

“We hope that by increasing the visibility of women with these signals in public and shared spaces, Londoners will be reminded of the huge contributions of women.”
