The current pedestrian crossing existed when the former school building was a school, but doesn't currently match most pedestrian traffic as most of those who want to cross wish to enter the Shaftesbury Park estate at Sabine Road or continue down Latchmere Road. A constituent has written to ask if the pedestrian crossing on Latchmere Road, between the railway bridge and Lavender Hill, could be moved further down the hill nearer to the pub?

It has been brought to my attention that MQ 2017/4337, that you submitted on 16 November 2017, has not received a response. I apologise for this oversight.


I understand that Transport for London (TfL) met with you and the London Borough of Wandsworth on Friday 19 January 2018 to discuss the pedestrian crossing on Latchmere Road, between the Railway Bridge and Lavender Hill. It was agreed not to relocate the existing crossing but to investigate additional crossings at the junction with Sabine Road. TfL is carrying out a collision study in this section, and will update you directly in March on progress.
