Zebra at N17

Designed for environmental crime: This zebra crossing is a boon for peds but what about the poor old tree? This layout says 'Don't bother to use the very expensive paving we (you) have provided, just take the shortest path between two points, compact the soil and make the place look ugly. We have qualifications to make these decisions for you and if the tree dies we have lots of money to plant a new one. Or perhaps we could just pave it all over with non-permeable imports and save the trouble.'
