Pedestrian crossing controlled by lights

Reported in the Traffic lights category anonymously at 18:57, Tuesday 5 February 2019

Sent to TfL 2 minutes later

The road island at this location is dangerous and should be replaced by pedestrian crossing control led by lights. The camber of the road outside the park gates needs. Attention due to flooding meaning people have to. Jump over a puddle not easy. A lot of the exit the park and find themselves maroon ed in the centre island with lorries whizzing by while some motorists hesitate to let people pass.

  • The dropped kerb on the park side is still too low allowing water to pool. TFL have notified me that the road is the responsibility of the local council. I have updated Shortland's Residents Association and they agree action is required to make this crossing safer given that cars come at pedestrians from all angles and motorists speed up to catch a green light. at the j/w Pickhurst lane.

  • The SRA has taken this matter up with local councillors and I believe their efforts to resolve this safety issue. will result in a successful conclusion.

  • The situation deserves a better solution than that exists here already. a road island which is more of an hindrance than a help. I you cannot stretch to lights perhaps you can install a pedestrian crossing (3D) to assist both motorists and pedestrians. thank you.

  • Still no advance to a potentially dangerous site. any times I have been marooned on the road island while a steady stream of HGV' s thunder by, not a pleasant experience when it is raining.. Crossing halfway is a hazardous experience for elderly folk and women with prams, in fact it is distressing and stressful. One feels very vulnerable crossing at this point.
