Parents worried about the safety of their children travelling to school are continuing to fight for a pedestrian crossing, after a Nower Hill High School pupil was hit by a car last week.
For more than three years, mother-of-two Farida Bakhshov has campaigned for a crossing at the junction of Pinner Road and George V Avenue.
But at 3.35pm on Tuesday last week a 15-year-old pupil stepped out onto the busy Pinner Road and was knocked down.
She was taken to Northwick Park Hospital, in Watford Road, Harrow, with cuts to her face.
Mrs Bakhshov, who presented a petition with more than 500 signatures to the council three years ago, believes this was an accident waiting to happen.
She said: "I feel very passionate about this issue because my 15-year-old daughter crosses it every day.
"It is an accident waiting to happen. The government wants to encourage people to walk to work or school but there is no incentive. We want to work with the council or soon we will be seeing a bunch of flowers tied to a lamp-post."
In the past five years there have been 24 accidents at the junction resulting in 35 casualties - mainly vehicle on vehicle collisions. The majority of accidents result from cars turning right at the junction.
George Nagle, deputy head-teacher at the school, said: "Around 600 children cross that road every day. There is nothing or no-one directing them. It is really dangerous. We would like to see lights or even someone guiding the children across.
"We do have an excellent relation-ship with the council, but we would like to see something done now."
A spokeswoman from the council said it had been investigating ways to provide a crossing and reduce the number of right-turning accidents, but feared this would result in traffic delays.
Councillor Susan Hall (Conservative), responsible for environment services, said: "Prior to the accident I had already asked for officers to commission consultants to formu
late some detailed proposals, and we have applied to Transport for London for approval and funding for alterations to the traffic signals.
"In the meantime, approval has been given to extend the 30mph speed limit further north of the school and to introduce more parking restrictions. These measures are expected to be implemented by September."
