Petition to keep pedestrian crossing open!

The pedestrian crossing near Westcombe Park station is under threat yet again, and as a resident of the nearby developments I'm asking fellow Charlton fans (that's you lot) to sign this petition to help us keep it open, or for tfl to offer a suitable alternative crossing in the same location. 

Many people coming from the Charlton side of the A2 use this crossing to get to the footbridge that provides a useful shortcut up to Westcombe Park station, a footbridge that becomes largely useless for many people without the adjacent crossing over the freight railway.

The reason for the crossing has been given as it's dangerous etc etc but in reality the train only comes in once or twice a day, so the likelihood of being hit by a train is virtually nonexistent.

Thank you!

  • I just want pedestrian crossings to be black and white or controlled  by traffic lights or both.

    You can stick the LGBT rainbow ones where the sun doesn't shine. 
    The strips are confusing, the paint fades as it is not light fast and the dopey council didn't  consider  that.

    They face the wrong way down the road. 

    Drivers often don't realise what they are and I have nearly been run down twice. When driving they are a menace. 

    Start a petition on pointless political road markings and I will sign yours.

    What has politics to do with Road signage except in the strange mind of councillors and governments. 
    I assume the Tories sanctioned the legality of these  'My Kittle Pony' horrors.
  • The petition said in would be closed in 2019 so why start a petition now?

    You're running away with this 'shit take of the week' award. It's not even a contest. Kudos.

    Fully agree. About time someone said it.

    Keep up the good work and ignore the haters.































     I thought  I was the only one who thought politics should not get involved in  street signage etc.

    Really.  Admittedly  it has not a lot to do with a rail crossing, one of which existed at Charlton crossing and one between Belvedere and Abbey Wood. 

    These were more dangerous than the one at Westcombe Park. I am surprised any exist now given Council safety concerns. 
    Yet they produce dangerous rainbow crossings all over the place. 

    However it has validity in it's own right. The rainbow crossings are the weird thing .

    It's not them that's the weird thing... 😬
  • I remember this crossing from my childhood.

    If it is closed, aren't we talking about a trip down Fairthorn Road to Woolwich Road, then along to Farmdale Road and back up the other side?

    And that's if you are already at the Gurdon Road/Fairthorn Road junction.

    I make that about 300m extra footwork ... and probably less if you are coming from anywhere other than Gurdon Road.

    I love heritage like this, but there isn't a case, is there?
