The junction of Plaistow High Street and Clegg Street is a nightmare for pedestrians, with no pedestrian lights on two sides.
This crossing serves a high footfall of pedestrians, including children, older people and those with disabilities, and is in close proximity to schools and local amenities.
Problems with this junction have been raised with the Labour Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, going back over five years. He made clear that it was down to the Labour-run Council to request that this be resolved, but it is still the same.
We want local residents to feel safe when in the community.
Freddie Downing, our local London Assembly candidate and James Clifford, Plaistow North by-election candidate (both pictured), will be fighting for this improvement. Please add your name to our petition to Newham Council and Transport for London to make this happen!
