Mayor and Local Authorities passing the buck around traffic accident hotspot

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.
