A new proposal by Mayor Boris Johnson has been met with criticism from disabled people. 

In order to fulfil his pledge of speeding up traffic flow, Transport for London (TFL) are cutting down crossing times for pedestrians at road junctions.

Many disabled pedestrians have raised concerns that having to rush across roads will put them in danger.

Mr Shamash from London, who is a person of restricted growth, said: “My walking time to cross a road is more than it would take a lot of people. I already find that when crossing certain roads, I have to rush.”
