Albert Bridge Road - Consultation on proposed zebra crossing

Closed 28 Feb 2018

Opened 1 Feb 2018

Overview

The council wants to hear your views on a proposal to provide a zebra crossing on Albert Bridge Road on the southern side of Albert Bridge.
 
The proposal has been developed in response to concerns raised by residents regarding the lack of pedestrian crossing facilities to the north of Parkgate Road on Albert Bridge Road, SW11. A high number of pedestrians cross at this location many of them to or from Battersea Park and the Thames Path.
 
The existing central island is split in two allowing pedestrians to cross each traffic lane separately making this movement easier. Due to the existing width restriction, vehicles have to slow down. This assists in giving pedestrians more time to cross.
 
However, vehicles speed up when they have passed the width restriction which places the elderly and the young at risk. The proposed zebra crossing would assist pedestrians in crossing Albert Bridge Road safely.
 
The key features of the proposed scheme are listed below and detailed in the drawing attached at the bottom of the page:
 
  • Black and white stripes on the carriageway to indicate the presence of a formal zebra crossing;
  • The existing dropped kerbs on either side of the road would remain but the buff coloured tactile paving would be replaced with red coloured tactile paving;
  • Belisha beacons on both sides of the road as well as on the existing central island; and
  • Zig zag lines on both sides of the proposed zebra crossing to make traffic aware of its presence.
It is important for the council to know the views of local residents and businesses before progressing with any improvements.
