Caroline Pidgeon AM joined local Liberal Democrats including Cllr Gwyneth Deakins to highlight the serious safety issues at the Charlie Brown roundabout in Redbridge.
Several years ago Transport for London developed plans to make the busy transport roundabout safer for road users including pedestrian crossings for local people. However this was cancelled and now TfL is once again carrying out feasibility studies for safety measures including looking at signals for the junction.
“I have spoken to many people in the area and they are frustrated and bewildered at TfL's failure to provide safe crossing facilities at the Roundabout. Many local people take their cars for relatively short journeys, rather than walk or cycle, because they dare not attempt to cross the roads there. This adds to the congestion!” commented Caroline.
