In the past two and a half years, almost 300 people have been killed and injured on the roads in and around the Elephant & Castle. Four pedestrians have died since Christmas 2011.
The most recent of these tragedies was the death of 5 year old Hichame Bouadimi, killed by a lorry on St George’s Road.
Local people demand that Transport for London which controls almost all of these roads takes immediate steps to make these roads safer.
We call on Transport for London to make the main roads in and around the Elephant & Castle safer and,
1) introduce enforced 20mph speed limits on all of these roads,
2) improve cycle safety on the Northern Roundabout,
3) create more pedestrian crossings and
4) narrow carriageways on St George’s Road and Newington Causeway.
The Safer Roads at the Elephant & Castle petition to Transport for London was written by Jeremy Leach and is in the category Roads & Transport at GoPetition.
