The Mayor


Further to my previous questions 2013/2802 and 2014/0488 and your refusal to publish the data I am seeking, will you now publish the list of Transport for London controlled pedestrian crossings that have neither an audible sound nor rotating cone and which are failing to meet the 1995 Department for Transport standard for minimum safety standards for blind and partially sighted people? Will you also list the pedestrian crossings which will finally meet the national safety standard in (a) March 2015 and (b) March 2016?

As of March 2014 there are 4,679 sites with TfL managed pedestrian crossing facilities, of which 164 are without an audible sound or rotating cone.

By March 2015 there will be only 62 sites (1 per cent) requiring modification and by March 2016, 100 per cent will be compliant.

I have asked TfL to share its programme for delivery with your office.
