With two collisions with pedestrians, one aged 87 and one aged 11, in quick succession on the Brighton Road near the junction with Nottingham Road would TfL support any bid by Croydon Council to improve pedestrian safety at this location?

TfL's London Road Safety Unit has checked reported casualties on Brighton Road for the latest 36 month period (to 30th September 2006). There have been two collisions at or near the junction of Brighton Road/Nottingham Road/Barlett Street, only one of which involved a pedestrian. It may be that TfL has yet to be formally notified of more recent collisions by the Metropolitan Police (or indeed, Croydon Council, as highway authority for the roads concerned).Croydon Council can of course contact TfL at any time if they are concerned about the safety of a location within their borough. TfL will continue to monitor this location. If it is felt that there is a treatable pattern of collisions involving pedestrians, TfL will provide funding for a detailed investigation of the reported collisions, in liaison with the Council.
