Question

Your answer to question 2014/4150 is disappointing, especially as this junction remains the only serious hazard along this Quietway, and you and your Cycling Commissioner explicitly promised not to duck difficult obstacles along the route. There are poor sightlines at this junction; are you satisfied that children from the primary school will be safe with a small 'refuge' rather than a signalised crossing?

LB Lewisham is the Highway Authority for Trundley's Road. To address poor sight lines, the borough's proposals at this location include a substantial three metre wide by five metre long pedestrian and cyclist refuge.

The refuge will include a section of raised carriageway to make users crossing the road more visible to approaching traffic, as well as serving to narrow the road, reducing traffic speeds. A signalised crossing was considered for this location, but was discounted due to the reasons outlined in the answer to question 2014/4150.
