A dangerous crossing near a school has been named the worst in Harrow after a string of accidents in the last three years.
Harrow Council figures revealed the crossing at the junction of George V Avenue, Pinner Road and Headstone Lane, in Pinner, has the highest rate of accidents in the borough, as well as a large number of car collisions.
From January 2005 to December 2008 there have been 24 reported incidents at the junction, which is close to Nower Hill High School, on George V Avenue.
The 22 accidents resulted in injuries to 35 people, three of them serious.
The majority of these were passenger injuries from vehicle-on-vehicle collisions.
However there have been two accidents involving pedestrians, the most recent was in July when a 15-year-old girl was knocked over at the junction and suffered minor injuries.
The statistics came as little surprise to Farida Bakhshov, of Headstone Lane, who has been campaigning for a pedestrian crossing at the junction.
The mother-of-two said: "This is why I have been campaigning for years. It is terrible the figures are so high, that is why something should be done.
"In 2010 they are planning to have 11-year-olds at the school who will be crossing the road.
"It is one of the busiest junctions in Harrow and it is complicated to cross and we don't have anything there."
Mrs Bakhshov, who has a daughter at the school, added she believed the accident rate could be even higher as people often have vehicle-on-vehicle collisions but do not report them.
As the Observer reported last week children at the school made a DVD about the dangerous crossing in the hope of raising awareness of the situation.
Assistant head George Nagle, said: "I am glad someone is saying it's dangerous, we have been saying this for years.
"The council do a good job, but they have got to address this road crossing.
"We need a pedestrian crossing so that it isn't a mad dash across the road."
More than 500 residents signed a petition in 2005 requesting a crossing facility at the junction.
The statistics from a Harrow Council Traffic and Road Safety Advisory Panel agenda show the crossing is a high priority for the council.
Councillor Susan Hall, portfolio holder for environment services, said:
"The council is continuing to work with Transport for London to find a workable solution to the problems identified at the George V, Pinner Road and Headstone Lane junction. This November, an update will be given to the council's road and safety advisory panel.
"In addition, I will be meeting with residents on October 29 to get their feedback as well as listening to their concerns."
