Question

A constituent has raised with me the fact that at the end of Finchley lane NW4 where it  reaches the Great Northern Way  there is  no pedestrian crossing at all. The only way to cross that part of Finchley lane is to run across the road while the light changes for vehicles, wait in middle of the road and dash across once more when the light again. His  sons wish to start taking the bus to their school instead of going by car but the idea of them crossing that road terrifies him. As it is a busy crossing and there is not a single zebra crossing or pedestrian traffic light on the entire Finchley Lane will you investigate what can be done?.

LB Barnet is the highway authority for Finchley Lane and it is therefore for them to consider whether they wise to promote enhanced pedestrian facilities along their road.

At the main junction with the A1, there is a staggered pedestrian crossing on the north side and informal facilities are provided for pedestrians in the form of central islands on the side road arms.
