I have been pursuing as casework for over a year the question of whether pedestrian crossing facilities in Upper Thames Street by Southwark Bridge can be improved. Unfortunately this has repeatedly been shunted into the part of TfL highways that cannot do anything, without a major, multi-year traffic study. Meanwhile, pedestrians are forced to wait an inordinately long time for green lights and are taking risks. As the office and residential community on the riverside grows the demand for improved pedestrian facilities will grow too. Can you let my constituents and employers know how you are going to cut through this sclerotic bureaucracy?
