When will you make progress with the proposed Pelican crossing on Colindeep Lane? Whilst Barnet Council's  Highways Design team is on track to have their design finalised this  month the TfL signal design is pending and it does not appear the timescales Barnet have been given by TfL are compatible with Barnet's aspirations. As  the proposal has become unexpectedly drawn out, it is now impinging on Barnet's  ability to put the scheme on programme as they  cannot do this until such a time as DPR approval is gained. Further, as it is standard practice for all contractors to give 3 months' notice to gain permits to commence the work on site, there is now a disappearing window that it will be built before the end of the financial year. Will you take action to get this project back on track within TfL?

I am assured that good progress is being made on the development of the proposed Pelican crossing on Colindeep Lane.

TfL is not able to commence detailed design until the London Borough of Barnet's design for the kerb and island layout is complete.  This design is nearing completion and TfL's signal design will be carried out upon receipt.

Civil engineering of the works are planned to commence on site early in the New Year with completion currently programmed for 1 March, enabling the subsequent signal installation to be completed before financial year end.
