I'd like to request the installation of a pedestrian crossing outside Spitalfields Market, at the junction between Commercial Street and Lamb Street and Hanbury Street. Four lanes of motor traffic cross through this junction, and there are currently no pedestrian crossings at any part of this intersection. This is a very popular area with pedestrians at weekends, and, especially during the Summer, there are always large crowds of people trying to cross. Given that Commercial Street is a major road for motor traffic, this is a very intimidating junction to navigate on foot without the guidance of a pedestrian crossing. Pedestrians must currently watch for red signal on one of the four lanes that cross through this junction, and negotiate our way through, while looking for a gap in the motor traffic. I request that we provide at least one pedestrian crossing here in the interests of pedestrian safety.
