Fence Causing Blind Spot

Reported via Android in the Other street defect category anonymously at 08:48, Monday 16 May 2022

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3527830.

The new fence that has been built around the area under construction is creating a blind spot on a corner where hundreds of school children cross each morning, with two primary schools located across the road. With the island in the middle and no nearby crossing or lollipop person this should be the safest place to cross, but no longer is. A zebra crossing or traffic lights ought to be put there so that cars prepare to stop, as they can't see as they approach until they are very close whether people are crossing, and pedestrians cannot see whether cars are approaching until it's too late.

  • This fence still remains in place, with no update to myself regarding whether a pedestrian crossing can be arranged on the nearby traffic island. It's high time this road had a pedestrian crossing anyway, with two primary schools and no crossing guard, but this enormous fence which blocks the view around the corner is simply an accident waiting to happen, and there is no way of the public knowing how long it is likely to be there for.

  • This fence is still in place. It would be amazing if a crossing guard magically appeared when the schools reopen in September.
