Petition update from the council, 28 September 2015Dear Mr Lee
PETITION: REQUEST FOR ZEBRA CROSSING AT AYBROOK STREET LONDON W1
I refer to your petition regarding the provision of a zebra crossing in Aybrook Street as a result of the Moxon Street development. As you may be aware, this issue is one that has already been raised by the St Vincent Catholic Primary School as well as by the relevant ward councillors. It has been agreed that a zebra crossing will be funded as part of the highway works associated with the development project.
Investigations will now be taking place into the appropriate location and design for the zebra crossing, taking on-board the proposed closure of St Vincent Street. As part of the progression of the proposal, consideration will be given to the construction programme for the development works. The construction works will impact on road users in the area and mitigating measures may be required to maintain safe operation of the highway. In order to avoid abortive works it may be necessary, therefore, for the proposals in this area to be phased in and temporary arrangements adopted until the development is completed.
Thank you for taking the time to raise this issue with the City Council and I hope that this provides you with reassurance that a zebra crossing will be built.

More details from petition creator
The intersection of St Vincent Street and Aybrook Street is near two schools and crossed twice daily by hundreds of schoolchildren and parents. It is also frequently used by residents, visitors and shoppers. The proposed Moxon Street car park development would increase foot and vehicle traffic on Aybrook Street making a zebra crossing vital to insure the safety of pedestrians.
