Question

A recent incident of a bus accident involving a woman has raised concerns about safety of pedestrians on this particular stretch of Station Road with two way bus service. I understand that TfL is investigating this incident. Can you please let me know what plans TfL have to better segregate the pedestrian and vehicular uses on this busy part of the town centre?

The Station Road public realm scheme in Harrow was completed in summer 2010 and the number of accidents involving pedestrians and vehicles, including buses, since its completion has been very low.  There have been a total of five collisions including one serious and TfL with the bus operator are currently investigating this collision. 

The results of the investigation will be shared with the London Borough of Harrow, who are the highway authority for Station Road.
