Request for an installation of a Pelican Crossing near the Junction (Lysander Road to Ickenham Road, B466)

We the undersigned petition Hillingdon Council to install a Pelican Crossing or a suitable traffic calming system at Junction of Lysander Road and Ickenham Road, B466. This crossing is especially used by young school children and their parents from Lysander Road, Blenheim Crescent, Lymington Road on a daily basis.

A small Island is present in the crossing, but it is not safe enough for crossing. The Ickenham Road, B466 gets really busy in the school run times (in the morning and afternoon). Vehicles are coming with high speed from both directions. It always gets scary for us to cross the road with our young children. The scariest and most difficult time is when we are waiting in the island waiting for incoming vehicles coming from the other direction to see us and slow down but at the same time, vehicles from the opposite direction are going through which make us scared as the road is small. If big and wide vehicles are coming or going, then it is more dangerous for people waiting in the island.

There have been several accidents at this crossing in the past. The island is currently damaged due to a recent accident.

This crossing has become our daily struggle.

To make this crossing safer for our young children and their parents and all the pedestrians, I propose for an installation of a pelican crossing or a suitable traffic calming measure at this crossing as quickly as possible.

On reaching 100 signatures it will be formally considered by the Council and relevant Cabinet Member. Local ward Councillors will also be made aware of the petition. The Council's Democratic Services Team will keep the lead petitioner updated on progress.

This ePetition runs from 24/06/2021 to 22/09/2021.
