We the undersigned petition Westminster City Council to extend the time on the second set of pedestrian crossing lights at the west side of the A501 and Park Crescent to allow for safe crossing to The Regents Park. . More details
For the crossing to The Regents Park via the A501 from the traffic lights north of Crescent Park, the timing on the first set of lights to the island is sufficient, but the second set doesn’t permit adequate time to cross. This poses difficulties for children, the disabled and the elderly. In total, there are four schools with small children, teachers and staff located within proximity (L'Ecole International Franco-Anglaise, Abercorn School, Portland Place School and Queen's College Preparatory School) who use this intersection regularly. It would also be prudent for there to be railings which could possibly prevent pedestrians from falling onto an extremely busy and dangerous intersection. Our goal is to make more vulnerable road users such as children, the disabled and the elderly safer. We seek to create a safer, healthier and more pleasant environment.
