We the undersigned petition Westminster City Council to take action on traffic and pedestrian issues on Portland Place to improve road safety. More details
There are no pelican crossings/pedestrian light sequences at the following intersections - Portland Place and New Cavendish Street (north side); Portland Place Weymouth Street (south side); Devonshire Street and Portland Place (south side).
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 CoIlege Preparatory School) who use these intersections multiple times daily to go to and from school as well as to walk to The Regents and Crescent Parks for sport and school activities. As is, conditions for pedestrians are extremely unsafe.
Our goal is to make more vulnerable road users such as children, the disabled and the elderly feel safer.
