The new crossing outside the ASDA superstore is a technically better one than what went before
but unfortunately it doesn’t make for safety, not with Bexley council’s design skills and the
way too many people are using it anyway.
Lulled into a false sense of security by a pavement that appears to extend right across the road with nothing but some red stones to designate the edge of the road, people on phones, with buggies, on sticks and with friends alongside to talk to, assume magical immunity from being bumped up their rear ends. And it doesn’t help that a few drivers don’t even notice the red lights.
Bus drivers must hate it, sooner or later someone is going to come a cropper - oh, I forgot, someone already has.
