Council officers have targeted a busy stretch of road in a bid to reduce the number of incidents at an accident blackspot.
A humped zebra crossing has been proposed along Gooshays Drive by Petersfield Avenue, Harold Hill.
Nine people have been injured crossing the road in the last five years with three of them reported as serious.
The proposal is seeking to meet targets set by the government and Transport for London on the number of recorded accidents.
It is hoped by 2020, the number of those killed or seriously injured will have reduced by 40 per cent when compared to 2005-09.
A decision on the scheme will be made via the council’s Highways Advisory Committee.
But before any decision is made, people can take part in a consultation with responses discussed next month at the committee’s meeting on March 7.
People can have their say by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Responses need to have been received by Friday.
