New Oxford Circus Diagonal Pedestrian Crossing

The unveiling of a 5 million pound cross road took place in Oxford Circus. due to the fact that crossing system has been remodelled and now resembles what one Londoner described as "a lethal looking algebra x style crossing." The crossing that was officially opened on Monday 2nd November 2009. The crossing was inspired by Tokyo’s scramble crossing, therefore instead of cutting a ribbon Major of London Boris Johson banged a huge gong to declare the crossing open as Japanese musicians played taiko drums. I hope this will curb the amount of deaths around the oxford street area as there has been many a day where I have seen the famous yellow fatal traffic accident signs.
