Campaigners in Kensal Green have won a 10-year fight to get a ‘Green Man’ pedestrian crossing on a ‘dangerous junction’ that covers three boroughs.
Kensal Triangle Residents’ Association (KTRA) are celebrating after learning yesterday that funding has been secured for the measures which will make the junction between the top of Ladbroke Grove and Harrow Road a safer place to cross.
Hundreds of people use the junction which is spread over Brent, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster.
More than 1,000 locals signed a petition calling for the safety measures.
The campaign was also supported by Cllr Paul Dimoldenburg, Westminster councillor for Queen’s Park, Victoria Borwick, Conservative MP for Kensington, Rev. David Ackermans from St John’s Church and Glenda Jackson, former Labour MP for Hampstead and Kilburn.

Avril Mackintosh, from KTRA, said: “I would like to thank everyone who has supported the campaign.
“We will be celebrating properly when the crossing is actually installed and working; but for now, success seems very much closer!”
