Dangerous junction.

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 17:00, Tuesday 11 June 2019

Sent to Merton Borough Council 5 minutes later

The pedestrian crossing situated on Merton Road is dangerous for crossing with children. Drivers pulling out of Pelham Road onto Merton road frequently don’t see the red light of the pedestrian crossing. Was just crossing with my daughter and another family (16:45 Jun 11 2019) and someone drove through as we crossed. It is also frequently blocked by queuing lorries and buses, making it impossible for motorbikes to see the crossing. Lastly, the road is very wide, increasing crossing time and traffic speed, reducing the feeling of safety. Suggest a review of the layout of this junction as it is used by many families at school drop-off/pick-up times.
