Hi Froggy. We were successful in lobbying TfL to include changes to this crossing (signaled pedestrian crossing phase, improvements for cyclists) in a series of proposed improvements to Tower Bridge Road
(e.g. additional cycle lanes etc). The next stage was for TfL to consult on the changes. Improvements to this junction (Abbey St/TBR) were first on the consultation timetable.
I made an enquiry myself a couple of weeks ago about what was happening as things seemed to have gone a bit quiet. Council officers informed me that TfL's timeline has been delayed but that the consultation on this junction is expected to start before the end of the month. We will need to keep an eye on this to make sure it does not slip further.
Let me know if you have any other questions and I will include them in my next set of questions to TfL/council officers.
