Road safety in Wanstead: concerns over High Street zebra crossing


Concerns have been raised over the safety of the zebra crossing on Wanstead High Street, opposite Christ Church Green.

It follows an incident last month when a pedestrian was injured, and in 2016, a 91-year-old man was knocked over and killed at the site. Redbridge Council is considering responses to a consultation on plans to make the crossing a raised ‘speed table’, but there are also calls to relocate the crossing, remove the trees that obstruct the view for drivers and pedestrians, or change it to a pelican crossing.
