Thank you for your request received on 12 October 2021 asking for information about the colourful pedestrian crossings that have recently been installed at some of London’s crossings.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can confirm we do hold the information you require. You asked:

Please could you publish any Equality Impact Assessment or any other consultation, minutes or any other document you hold which considers the impact Colourful Crossings have on disabled people

Every site on the TLRN (Transport for London Road Network) is considered on a case by case basis with road safety risk assessments and Equality Impact Assessments (EQIAs) carried out to identify equality impacts. TfL has provided advice to boroughs and those implementing colourful crossings to be mindful of the impacts on a wide range of pedestrians and will communicate the outcome of any policy changes following their recently completed research.

Please find attached the ‘FS1 R1 Colourful Crossing EQIA’, completed in 2016, for Colourful Crossings in the London Borough of Southwark on the TLRN, the ‘Colourful Crossings’ document shows the locations in Southwark. 

Please also find attached:

In accordance with our obligations under Data Protection legislation some personal data has been removed, as required by section 40(2) of the FOI Act. This is because disclosure of this personal data would be a breach of the legislation, specifically the first principle of Article 5 of the UK General Data Protection Regulation which requires all processing of personal data to be fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose this personal information when the individuals have no expectation it would be disclosed and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions which would make the processing ‘fair’.

This exemption to the right of access to information is an absolute exemption and not subject to an assessment of whether the public interest favours use of the exemption.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some reason, please feel free to contact me.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
