Local parents have started a petition calling on Southwark Council to install a new pedestrian crossing in Borough High Street close to the junction with Trinity Street and Great Suffolk Street.
The existing traffic lights at this junction do not have a pedestrian phase.
The petitioners say that this junction is on an important route for for parents and children of many local schools.
TfL is currently removing traffic lights at many locations to meet Boris Johnson's aspiration to "smooth traffic flow" in the capital. TfL also rejected a recent request for a new crossing on Tower Bridge Road.
• The petition is available to sign on the Southwark Council website.
