There is currently a petition on Westminster's web site to convert the pedestrian crossing of Marylebone Road at the junction with Harley Street to allow use by pedestrians and cyclists.

The crossing is part of a potential cycle route between Regent's Park and the West End along Harley Street. (See map.) This is part of an alternative Quietway included in the Mayor of London's Central London Cycling Grid.

Mary Hellett, who started the petition, says: ‘I cycle to work in Westminster and use this crossing every day to avoid cycling on Euston road itself. The crossing is always very busy at peak times with both pedestrians and cyclists trying to squeeze through the barriers, the green light does not stay green long enough for everyone to make it across both sections in one go, so I petition either to give everyone more time to cross or create a dual crossing lane to separate pedestrians from bicycles.’
