Maida Vale Labour Councillor Rita Begum has launched an on-line petition to persuade Westminster City Council to install a Zebra Crossing at the Carlton Vale Paddington Recreation Ground Entrance, next to the Carlton Tavern pub.
“Many children cross at this junction, with the St Georges Secondary school around the corner. This is a high density residential area with many elderly and young people living here. Large numbers of vehicle pass on this road speeding without stopping or noticing cars parked on the street. Anyone who uses or passes here on a regular basis is aware of the near misses that occur daily at this site. It is only a matter of time before a fatality occurs and this is something nobody wants to happen. The problem with this crossing is the landscape in which it is set, poor visibility, a narrow and busy environment.”
