Clive joins protest calling for TfL to introduce pedestrian crossing at Clifton's roundabout

cliftons_roundabout_protest_june_2015015.jpgClive joined with local residents at a protest this morning calling for TfL to provide a new pedestrian crossing across Westhorne Avenue near the Clifton’s roundabout.

A Tesco Express opened next to the Clifton Petrol Station a few years ago and this has led to many people – and in particular schoolchildren – having to cross the busy and dangerous Westhorne Avenue near to its junction with the roundabout.

Clive says: “This is clearly a very dangerous place to cross this busy road.  I would like TfL to come here and talk to local residents and see for themselves the risks that people – particularly children after school – are taking to get to the new shop.  Other roads at this junction have crossings and I do not see why we could not get one here.”

Definitely needs a crossing to the east and west of the round about. When I come home in the evenings, I get off the 321 bus and walk up Sidcup Road and I have the cross that road and it’s extremely dangerous with the cars driving by at high speeds as they come off the roundabout. On almost all occasions I have to run across the road in an effort to avoid being hit by car. God forbid I (or anyone else I’ve seen dodging the speeding traffic there) should trip in front of an oncoming vehicle. I’ve seen a couple with a push chair running across! This is just seems to be a completely unacceptable situation in a residential area, so to me it seems a no-brainer to have a pedestrian crossings to the east and west of the roundabout (just as there is on Sidcup road to the north and south of it. Do we know if anything decision has been made further to the tfl traffic review 06/11/2013?
