Question

I have been contacted by constituents who report difficulties experienced by pedestrians attempting to cross the road at the junction of North Hill with Church Road in Highgate. Despite the presence of traffic lights this is a junction which currently lacks any formal pedestrian crossing facilities. A care home, GP surgery, nursery and junior school are all located at this location and there is an understandable fear that uses of these services are at particular risk of harm.

I understand that London Borough of Haringey Officers are making representations to Transport for London's signals team regarding the possibility of having pedestrian facilities installed. Will you support their representations and look at improving the usability of this junction for pedestrians?

As you recognise, the London Borough of Haringey is responsible for this junction and for considering how best to manage the competing demands for it. As of 19 January 2012, Haringey had not yet made contact with TfL to discuss provision of a pedestrian phase.
