Coming from NKR the other day I joined a flood of people dashing across the road to get to the Bakerloo line entrance as I had got to the closed E&C pub before I realised about the closure. From that point it's quite a far way in the wrong direction to get over the official crossing and to the tube. An accident seems really likely - can we have a lollypop lady/man/person until they get round to opening new crossings?
