The residents of Chessington and Malden Rushett, who live by the A243 Leatherhead Road, have long campaigned for TfL to make the road safer. Will you ensure that the recent accident involving a young child on this stretch of road acts as a wake up call for appropriate urgent action?

The Metropolitan Police is investigating the causes of the serious collision and TfL stand ready to provide them with every assistance.

As you know, TfL is already working with the Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames to consider the provision of a pedestrian phase at the junction of Merritt Gardens and Leatherhead Road, at which the collision took place. The collision history of this junction is relatively low: in the previous three years to June 2011 there had only been two collisions here, neither of which involved pedestrians.
