Answer for Installation of Crossings by TfL

Answered By: 
The Mayor

a) I am pleased to confirm that funding for a crossing facility at the Lavender Hill/Latchmere Road junction is included in TfL's 2002/3 business plan. Detailed design is programmed to commence in April but a number of checks and safety audits will be necessary before the work is commissioned. At this stage it is likely that the physical works will be undertaken late in 2002 or early in 2003. b) Owing to the physical constraints, it has not been easy to find a safe and workable solution to enable a pedestrian crossing to be introduced at the junction of Roehampton Lane and Upper Richmond Road. The difficulties have now been resolved and a scheme developed which has satisfied the safety concerns. TfL are committed to improving pedestrian facilities at this junction and a bid for funding provision is to be made against the 2003/04 budget. .
