We the undersigned, being local residents, school children and visitors petition Westminster Council to install a pedestrian crossing on the Formosa Street and Warwick Avenue junction (Sutherland Avenue side). This junction is in urgent need of a safe, pedestrian crossing and is a direct route for a high volume of pedestrians commuting to and from a number of local pre, primary and secondary schools (Park View, St Saviour’s CE, St Joseph’s RC and St Mary Magdalene's CE to name only 3 primary schools); as well as a well travelled route to the canal bridge at Formosa Street/Blomfield Road and local businesses on Formosa Street. At present, NO safe crossing point exists and vehicles barely stop at the roundabout for each other, let alone for hapless pedestrians.

Cindy Vallis, United Kingdom6 years ago Comments: There are frequent near misses as vehicles traverse the mini roundabout at this junction, particularly from the Warwick Avenue direction towards Sutherland Ave. Perhaps a warning sign can be put up before the junction (which flashes if a vehicle is going over the limit) to remind drivers not to speed. The crossing could be inserted with minimum disruption, the rubbish containers would only need moving a little up Warwick Avenue to allow space for the crossing.
