The railing beside the crossing needs to be extended, same as it is on the other side of the crossing. The kerb is raised for safety/ car purposes but is counter intuitive for a pedestrian thinking the kerbs go down by a crossing.

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3665871.
I tripped over a raised kerb & hurt myself. I was 5 months pregnant at the time but thankfully only hurt my knee & palm of hand. If this had been an elderly person they would have seriously been injured. The railing on this side of the crossing, facing the Tube station needs extending. You have it extended on the other side, so copy that. This is a gap between railing & sloped pavement which is mentally confusing for a pedestrian. Add more railing please.
