Last year, I joined Islington Living Streets (LLS), the Islington Pensioners Forum and representatives from two local schools in a demonstration to have a green man crossing installed on Drayton Park/Holloway Road. The following has happened so far: LLS was told TfL that there would be a consultation on proposals in Autumn 2007; in November 2007 they were informed about the plans in progress with aspiration for implementation Autumn 2008; in May 2008 they were told that a consultation was due in July/August. However, by the 1st of October ... Zilch!
Considering the fact that Arsenal FC put £500,000 in to improve these junctions, lack of funding cannot be what causes the delay. How much longer do local people have to wait for a green man crossing on this dangerous junction?
