Ensure we can cross the road safely during the work at Balham station.

    1. Petition by

      Tom Baker

      London, United Kingdom

Four Pedestrian Crossings have been removed to allow work to take place to lengthen the platforms at Balham Station.

Temporary traffic lights have been installed for cars, but nothing has been provided to ensure pedestrians can cross safely.

I'm calling on Wandsworth Council to work with Network Rail to ensure the safety of the thousands of local residents who cross at the junction between Bedford Hill and Station Approach every day.

      No thought has been given to the safety of pedestrians. My walk to the station or the bank used to be safe and straightforward; now I have to cross Bedford Hill, then Fernlea Rd, Bedford Hill again and finally Station Rd to reach the station, mostly without the security of lights. Why were they removed from Fernlea Rd? This is a very well used crossing. I invite the councillors and road traffic people to come down here and try it for themselves (preferably with their children in tow) and see how they like it.

      I think the traffic situation is totally outrageous at the moment. It's not good at the best of times but now I'm afraid to step off the pavement lest I be knocked over by a vehicle coming from any number of directions.

      Road safety is important.
