Romford Labour calls for pedestrian crossing on Waterloo Road


Romford Labour are petitioning Havering Council to install a crossing over Waterloo Road following concern from residents about people jumping over the barrier on the busy road.

Pedestrians travelling between the flats on Union Road (the old Oldchurch Hospital site) and Romford Town centre and the Brewery will often cross Waterloo Road at the point in the picture.

Members of the Romford Labour Party visited the crossing to see the problem first-hand and witnessed three people jumping over the barrier within five minutes of arriving!

This is because pedestrians can only walk under the railway bridge to get to the town centre on the opposite side of Waterloo Road. The nearest crossing is the subway under the roundabout at the end of Waterloo Road and Oldchurch Road, but this can add 10 minutes to the journey time and involves walking back on yourself.

An accident is bound to happen here sooner or later unless a crossing is installed, that's why Romford Labour have launched a petition for a crossing here. But we can only win with your support!
