Croydon Citizens ‘cross’ at dangerous road: Community alliance calls for longer green man at unsafe crossing

Community leaders from Croydon Citizens took action on Sunday to highlight a dangerous pedestrian crossing in Thornton Heath.

The leaders, dressed in green, crossed the road between Tesco and Superdrug on Brigstock Road in Thornton Heath behind elderly and disabled peers to show how difficult it is to get across safely before the green man turns red.

The leaders held banners saying ‘give us time to cross’ and ‘stay green for longer’ in an attempt to send a clear message to Transport for London (TfL) who are responsible for all traffic lights and crossings in Croydon.
