Earl's Court has been revealed as having one of London's most inaccessible and unsafe pedestrian crossings.
Research by Caroline Pidgeon, Leader of the Liberal Democrat London Assembly Group, shows that a pedestrian crossing on Earl's Court Road (junction with Bramham Gardens and Earl's Court Square) is one of a handful in London that are not only breaking national safety standards over the minimum time for pedestrians to cross the road but is also failing to provide any assistance for blind people to cross the road.
Caroline, who obtained the information following a series of written questions to the Mayor of London, said:
"At present the Mayor of London seems to put the interests of pedestrians at the very bottom of his priorities. It is simply shameful that there remain pedestrian crossings in London that are so inaccessible and unsafe.
"The Mayor should ensure as a matter of urgency that every pedestrian crossing in London is safe and accessible for everyone."
