Murad Qureshi, London Assembly Member, calls upon the Mayor, Boris Johnson, to use his powers and act decisively to sort out a notorious accident hotspot.
Murad said: "Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea and Brent Councils are all failing their residents by not providing any pedestrian crossings at the junction of Harrow Road, Kilburn Lane, and Ladbroke Grove. Twenty-four people have been injured, four seriously, trying to cross the road at this junction. It is about time that Mayor Boris Johnson knocks heads together to come up with a solution to this pressing problem."
In written answers to Murad’s questions the Mayor ducks the issue and lays the blame on the three Local Authorities.
Rather than taking a lead to sort out this problem Boris takes a back seat and offers technical advice if asked.
