Many people cross Borough High Street every day at its junctions a) with Great Dover St and Marshalsea St and b) with Trinity St and Great Suffolk St.
At the junction with Great Dover St and Marshalsea St there is no green man pedestrian crossing on the eastern arm between St George The Martyr Church and Brandon House.
There is no green man pedestrian crossing at all at the junction with Trinity St and Great Suffolk St. Safe crossings are especially important in this area owing to the hundreds of families who live to the east of BHS whose children go to the many schools on the west side including Charles Dickens Primary School, the Cathedral School and St Joseph’s Primary School, Friars PrimarySchool, the London Christian School, St Saviour’s and St Olave's school, the Bright Horizons Nursery and The Arc Nursey.
Many also wish to visit the parks close by such as Mint Street Park, Little Dorrit Park and Red Cross Garden.
We call on Transport for London and Southwark Council to review crossing safety on Borough High Street and to create Green Man Pedestrian crossings:
1) on all arms of the junction with Great Dover St and Marshalsea St.
2) at the junction with Trinity St and Great Suffolk St.
