Boris set to abolish Brockley pedestrian crossing

The Mayor of London has published a list of pedestrian crossings which he is proposing to remove, saying they are 'no longer useful'.

One such crossing on the list is on Lewisham Way, by the end of Tyrwhitt Road. As anyone who has ever walked down Lewisham Way knows, this stretch of road is busy and fast-moving. People will still want to cross it - without a crossing at this point, their attempts to cross will be significantly more dangerous.

Bad idea, Boris.

PS. Other crossings in Lewisham which are on the list are:
- Lewisham Rd by Morden Hill
- Torridon Rd / Hither Green Lane
- Hither Green Lane / Duncrieve Way
