For those who haven't heard, we are running a safer roads at Elephant and Castle campaign driven by the fact that in the past two and a half years, almost 300 people have been killed and injured on the roads in and around the Elephant & Castle. Four pedestrians have died since Christmas 2011. The most recent of these tragedies was the death of 5 year old Hichame Bouadimi, killed by a lorry on St Georgeís Road.
If you have any time do come along to the day of action on Friday 16th November.
Our aim is to collect as many petition signatures as possible from when we start at 8am until the end of the day. The map below shows that we will be based just outside the London College of Communication
who have kindly said that we can make use of the space outside the front of the college.
We have asked members of TfL and the GLA to come down to talk to local parents at the end of the school day (at about 4pm) about their concerns about the roads. Around this time a local artist will judge the best poster created by local school children for the campaign. The day ends at 5pm with a vigil to remember all those killed on Londonís roads organised by RoadPeace. Come along and sign the petition or if you have time or pick up a clip board and ask some others to sign.
Do come along if you can.
