Regarding the planned pelican crossing on Colindeep Lane, Barnet Council say that the TfL signal design is pending and it does not appear the timescales they have been given by TfL are compatible with Barnet's aspirations. Without the TfL signal design, the pelican crossing cannot go ahead. As the proposal has become unexpectedly drawn out, it is now impinging on Barnet's ability to put the scheme on programme as Barnet cannot do this until such a time 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 very slim chance that the crossing will be built before the end of the financial year. What is the reason for the delay and will you get your finger out to make sure the work is done promptly to protect the many schoolchildren who are dependent on crossing this road safely?
