Dangerous Intersection

Reported anonymously at 17:13, Fri 22 January 2016

Turning right from Kenworthy Road onto Marsh Hill is an exercise in terror. Oncoming westbound traffic from Marsh Hill doesn't slow down, and a continuous flow of traffic from Homerton High Street means that without taking illegal and/or aggressive action, cars turning right could easily sit for tens of minutes at a time. For cyclists and pedestrians, navigating this intersection is downright dangerous. For pedestrians, the intersection is dangerous due to cars turning right off of Homerton High Street onto Kentworthy Road are often aggressive, and fail to see the zebra crossing on Kenworthy Road. For cyclists (and cars), the use of Homerton High Street as effectively two lanes means that even if a right-turning vehicle on Homerton High Street gives way to a cyclist or car turning right from Kenworthy Road, there are often oncoming vehicles passing the right-turn lane at high speed. There are many possible fixes (e.g., a roundabout! A controlled intersection!) but in the meantime, the fact that there is no yellow box junction on the westbound lane of Marsh Hill in front of Kenworthy Road means that congestion is worse whilst the westbound lane queues (which happens often).
