Answered By: 
The Mayor

Thank you for raising this issue with me. I have asked Transport for London to work with the local Metropolitan Police Service Safer Transport and Safer Neighbourhood Teams alongside the local authority to investigate the issues in this area and pull together a plan of action for tackling identified issues. This will include an investigation into lighting and CCTV in the area.  

I am pleased to confirm that the overhanging foliage has been cut back in the interim and this will improve visibility in the area.
