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 on these roads 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 takes immediate steps to make these roads safer. We call on Transport for London to 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.
Please sign the petition and call on Transport for London to make these changes. Link to petition
