On 18th January 2018, The Uniting Friends Road Safety Action Group met with Wes Streeting MP (Ilford North) to explain about their concerns over crossing the road at the A12/Beehive Lane junction. Currently there is no signal and there have been some near misses with traffic at this junction.

This concern is affecting people's ability to remain independent and the group want Transport For London (TFL) to take notice and install a safe crossing.

The group have launched a petition which will be submitted to TFL over the coming weeks.
