Since the end of last year, we have been working with the Greater London Authority’s Transport Committee on their enquiry into the safety of London’s pedestrians. This involved us providing evidence to the Committee and taking part in a blindfold walk around Oxford Circus with members of the Committee.
 
The Transport Committee has since launched a report into improving pedestrian safety in London. The report makes a number of recommendations to the Mayor and Transport for London which includes minimum crossing times and audit points. 
 
We shall continue to work with the Committee to ensure that accessibility remains a high priority. In particular that the current target of making 211inaccessible crossing points accessible by 2016 is brought forward.
