Transport For London has released a date for the start of works to add a pedestrian phase to the lights sequence & a cycle lane.
Work begins in April. They responded to letter written by Mrs Barrett after an incident earlier this week when a car struck a double buggy at the terrible junction.
Currently the lights allow just 6 seconds for pedestrians to cross, with traffic flow prioritised above pedestrian safety.
Here is an official update from TFL
Dear Ms Barrett
Thank you for your feedback form of 27 February about requesting a pedestrian crossing at the junction of Brownhill Road and Torridon Road.
I appreciate taking your time to write to us and I’m sorry to hear about the injury to the children involved in the accident.
We have undertaken a route study along Brownhill Road. Following this study, a concept design has been worked out for improvements on Brownhill Road at the junction with Torridon Road. The proposals include the adding of a pedestrian phase and advanced cycle stops lines and is currently with our signal engineers for design and auditing. These improvements are due to be delivered in April 2020.
We appreciate your patience whilst we look to carry out these works. I trust that you will notice an improvement here following the implementation of these improvements.
Thanks again for contacting us. If there is anything else we can help you with, please reply to this email. Alternatively, you can call us on 0343 222 1234 and we’ll be happy to help you.
