Question

I am extremely concerned to hear that after a long process of negotiation and technical analysis TfL buses have delayed an essential pedestrian safety scheme at the junction of York Hill, Lancaster Avenue and Norwood Road in West Norwood. In TfL road users hierarchy do you consider it to be more important that pedestrians and children can cross a busy junction safely or that a TfL bus may be delayed for a few seconds?

I am pleased to report that TfL has discussed the scheme with LB Lambeth and resolved concerns over the introduction of a pedestrian phase. Lambeth will consult locally on a separate scheme to provide bus priority measures at this junction to reduce bus passenger journey times.

I know that TfL has been in correspondence with you about this issue, and I have asked Andrew Miles to update you on the timescales for the introduction of the pedestrian crossing once known.
