Shepherd's Bush blogger Chris Underwood reports on the news - as revealed by the Mayor's answer to a question from Caroline Pidgeon in the London Assembly - that Hammersmith & Fulham Council is pressing ahead with plans to remove traffic lights despite concerns about pedestrian safety.
Caroline Pidgeon: Please list all boroughs in London which have agreed to the removal at traffic lights at all sites proposed by TfL.
Answer from the Mayor: TfL has not yet met all of the London boroughs to discuss the individual traffic signal sites proposed as potential candidates for removal but many have been receptive to the general principle. These discussions are therefore on-going.
To date, the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham has undertaken a public consultation on a site on Shepherd’s Bush Road and it has agreed that the site should be removed. Other boroughs, including Brent, Ealing and Westminster, have been receptive to the concept and are looking at alternative/additional locations where signals could potentially be removed.
