    I keep saying;

    1. Reduce the speed limit to 20MPH on all approaches
    2. Remove the railings
    3. Paint a box junction on the entire junction
    4. Change the traffic lights to stop all traffic on all entrances to junction

    ... allowing pedestrians to cross arbitrarily once all the traffic has ceased.

    It's cheaper and I can imagine relatively quick to try...

    If it don't work, then have your multi million pound consultation.

    But I reckon it will work...

    See other crossings that do this;

    - Montpellier/Western Road in Brighton
    - Oxford/Regent Street in London

    I'm convinced that Zebra crossings are a step backwards...

    We need to give road users/pedestrians a more equal standing at these kind of junctions...

    when one group is on go, the other group is stopped... and vice versa...
    Sounds like a plan. I was up at Oxford Street a while ago and the new layout is brilliant. No street furniture, a big box junction and diagonal pedestrian crossing. Works brilliantly."

Seven Dials roundabout row

The Argus: Campaigners at Seven Dials Campaigners at Seven Dials

Community campaigners are opposing town hall plans to revamp a roundabout.

Brighton and Hove City Council is currently asking people for their views on the Seven Dials junction, north-west of Brighton station.

The local authority believes steps can be taken to ease congestion and make it safer for pedestrians and road users.

But members of the Dials North West Community Association believe it will create extra traffic in neighbouring residential streets.

Millie Ferguson, of the group, said: “There is room for improvement at Seven Dials. But we do need to be concerned about the primary intention of the plans – turning the clock back 30 years, prior to any proper consideration of the affect this would have on the surrounding area.

“If we return to the old layout, we are surely faced with a recurrence of the old congestion problem and attempts to return the Dials to its present state will be tremendously difficult.”
