Question

Further to Question 2015/4045:

'Representatives from Torriano Primary School and the school community met with TfL officers recently and discussed the safety of the nearby crossing which is greatly used by children and parents.  TfL are taking the matter seriously and are planning to put forward proposals, some of which may need lengthy consultation. Is it therefore possible for the implementation to take place in stages?'

Your answer being:

'TfL is developing proposals for the crossing, which includes assessing whether any changes are required to the existing parking facilities on Camden Park Road. If changes are required this would require a full public consultation. The design work will confirm how works could be planned, including the potential of a phased approach. TfL will keep stakeholders informed of progress including timescales as soon as these become available.'

The School and parents have yet to receive an update from TfL since the site visit on 9th November. Will you instruct TfL to make progress on their plans and to contact the school?

TfL is continuing to design proposals to address concerns raised by the school and other local stakeholders. TfL plans to meet the London Boroughs of Camden and Islington later this month to discuss the design options, and will update the school after this meeting.
