Transport for London (TfL) have announced today that the scheme for installing pedestrian and cycle crossings at Charlie Brown’s Roundabout is to go ahead.

This follows a consultation exercise earlier this year in which an overwhelming 84% of respondents backed the scheme.

Councillor for Roding Ward where the Roundabout is sited, Gwyneth Deakins said ‘I am absolutely delighted to hear this news.  It follows years of campaigning by local people and their councillors to get this vital safety measure.  It is a victory for persistence and for common sense.’

TfL say that they will go ahead with the scheme as it was proposed in their consultation exercise, and that the work will be done in summer 2018.

Cllr Deakins said ‘This time it looks as though this project really is going to happen – we have had disappointments in the past but I am confident that it will now be implemented.  It will be a major boost to local residents especially those who have to take their children to school across the busy roads.

‘Bring on the summer!
