A petition calling on Transport for London to improve road safety around Elephant & Castle has been handed to members of the London Assembly transport committee at City Hall.
The campaigners are demanding a 20 mph speed limit on roads around the Elephant & Castle, improved cycle safety at the northern roundabout, more pedestrian crossings and narrower carriageways on St George's Road and Newington Causeway.
Victoria Diamond of Boroughbabies and Jeremy Leach of Southwark Living Streets visited City Hall on Tuesday with Cllr Barrie Hargrove, Southwark cabinet member for transport, environment and recycling, to present the 2,458-signature petition.
The petition was received by members of the London Assembly transport committee: Labour's Val Shawcross, Lib Dem Caroline Pidgeon and the Green Party's Darren Johnson.
The assembly members will formally present the petition at a plenary meeting of the London Assembly and will seek a response from Transport for London.
