2. Coming along to either of these crossings at 3.45-4.15 on Friday 6th Dec.
There will be press and councillors coming along and we'd like to show them how
much local support there is for improvement at these crossings. (Just to be clear, we will not be obstructing traffic flow, just collecting signatures from crossing users!)
Thanks, I've signed. But why is no-one also petitioning for a crossing between, say, Barclays Banks and Borough Market (on either side of Borough High St.), where we have huge numbers of people but a bl**dy motorway of cars to cross and a tiny sliver of safe-space in the middle of the street ?! There needs to be a much more pedestrian-friendly crossing in the heart of now-touristy BHS !
We're going to be broaching the Borough Market crossings hopefully in the new year. The one you quote is terrible; there also needs to be some pedestrian phasing from Barclays across to Kehoes and then across to Borough Market, and then there's the Southwark Street/ Redcross Way junction, that isn't a designated crossing, but is heavily used by pedestrians as a key entry point into Borough Market - this one has been mentioned to us by many locals. So yes, there needs to be a concerted Borough Market Crossings plan of action...watch this space! V
Thank you for every one that's signed the on-line petition.
This is just a quick note to remind anyone who reads this that we are at the St George the Martyr crossing today collecting signatures. if anyone has the spare time or would like to help, please do pop along.
Also, at 3.45-4.15, we are expecting local councillors to come along to talk with us, so if you would like to come along then, please do!
Been meaning to post this which I found in a TfL response to a planning application:
"TfL is developing a scheme at the Borough High Street/St Thomas Street junction to improve pedestrian and cycle facilities, with associated urban realm improvements, for implementation in late 2014/early 2015."
