The petition to Croydon Council reads,
“We want Croydon Council to create a safer junction for pedestrians to cross.
The safety of pedestrians is compromised at the junction of Whitehorse Road with Northcote, Windmill and Hampton road. This junction has been on a list for investigation since at least 2011 and nothing has been done to improve it.
We want Croydon Council to do something about it before someone is killed.
Why is it important:
Now that Legacy, the multi-million pound youth zone, has been built, and Lidl is under construction near the junction, there will be an increase in pedestrian traffic, especially young people. It is more important than ever that pedestrian crossings are introduced before someone is killed. We are sick of hearing that it will cause traffic chaos when real lives (especially young lives) are in danger when crossing the road.”
