More than 1,000 people have signed a petition calling on Transport for London and Southwark Council to provide better pedestrian crossings on Borough High Street.
Campaigners from SE1 Safe Roads, Boroughbabies and Southwark Living Streets held a 'day of action' on Friday to draw attention to their request for better crossings at two key junctions on Borough High Street.
The petition asks TfL and the council to introduce pedestrian lights at the crossing between Brandon House and St George the Martyr church, as well as at the junction of Borough High Street, Trinity Street and Great Suffolk Street.
On Friday more than 900 people signed the paper petition in addition to the 200+ signatures gathered online.
