Extremely Busy/Dangerous Crofton Lane - Urgent need for road signs/basic zebra crossing

Reported via desktop in the Road Marking category anonymously at 18:05, Wednesday 15 February 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4235864.

There is no footpath on one side of road near the railway bridge and crossing with children is quite dangerous when vehicles just keep whizzing past - please see couple of pictures in the morning and evening. The ask is for a very simple Zebra crossing zig zag which perhaps is a partly amount from a months council tax collected from small households (3rd picture as a potential sample). Please let this not be confused with something which requires signal installation and has to go for a funding bid to TFL for crossing facilities. Can the traffic engineering department perform due diligence and investigation to arrive at a cost effective solution to this problem, which remains a sore challenge for all pedestrians. Thanks in advance and hopefully this will be addressed prior to the upcoming Town hall meeting.

Regards, Shrikant

  • This report has been referred to our Traffic Management Team who are responsible for the way traffic is managed on Bromley's roads; including, but not limited to, implementing new road markings and signage in relation to road safety and parking; walking and cycling improvements, including identifying locations for new cycle racks and installing Vehicle Activated speed signs - however, please note that responsibility for enforcing speed limits rests with the Police.

    Where requests are made for changes, our Traffic Management Team will consider all requests but often there is a need for a full investigation, planning and consultation within the local area particularly around proposed new traffic schemes, and any considerations must be balanced with borough-wide priorities. This report is now closed on FixMyStreet and our Traffic Management Team will consider this matter.

  • Thank you for your email, I am sorry to hear of your concerns regarding crossing on Crofton Lane. Unfortunately, this occurs at various locations around the borough and is not easily dealt with.

    Concerning your request for a pedestrian crossing to be installed at this location, whilst Bromley Council understands your concerns regarding pedestrian safety and is committed to promoting highway safety and preventing accidents, there are several factors that are taken into account when assessing whether a Zebra or signal controlled crossing (Pelican, Puffin, Pedex, Toucan) is appropriate, in general, these are: • The number of pedestrians needs to meet a specific criteria level, calculated based on the number of pedestrians crossing versus the traffic volume. • Accident statistics (numbers and type of accidents). • Pedestrian desire lines. • The volume of pedestrians throughout the day • Proximity to junctions’ bends and vehicle cross overs. • Location of trees and street furniture on the footway/grass verges. • Demand for on-street parking. • Location of bus stops.

    The above is not an exhaustive list and each site is investigated individually as other site specific issues may arise, which prevent a formal pedestrian crossing from being installed. On this occasion, we will not be able to justify a new pedestrian crossing at this location because of the low volume of pedestrian footfall.
