"Thank you for your petition, presented to the London Assembly (Plenary) meeting on 5 November, calling for Transport for London (TfL) to establish a pedestrian crossing and associated road safety features at the junction of Tulse Hill and Brixton Water Lane. So that you are aware, the London Borough of Lambeth is the HIghway Authority for this junction, and a local major retailer area has offered to make a financial contribution towards the provision of improved pedestrial facilities here. Both TfL and I fully support this aspiration, and TfL is working closely with the London Borough of Lambeth as well the retailer and their agents towards this. At the moment, all parties are working towards a solution that adequately balances the needs of all users of the junction, which includes pedestrians. If we can agree a design which achieves this, as well as the required funding to implement the scheme, TfL will deliver these improvements as soon as possible within its existing programme of works."
