A 67-year-old woman who campaigned to get a crossing put across a "very dangerous" Biggin Hill road has persuaded the council to act.
Barbara Howe says it is impossible to get across Main Road in Biggin Hill because of the endless stream of cars.
Mrs Howe, who has lived in Moselle Road for 50 years, says the problem has become worse in the last 10 years, and is a particular problem for schoolchildren and the elderly.
She said: "It is very, very dangerous to cross, very dangerous.
"The biggest worry is school children trying to cross and also the elderly.
"People have tried to cross and they cannot get over there. You have to run between cars.
"One car actually came round so fast it went into a man's brick wall.
"They come round there so fast. They come into the village as if their lives depend on it and it is so dangerous and, I thought, I have to try and do something about it."
Mrs Howe put together a petition, which she got 200 people to sign, and delivered it to Bromley Council.
She says now there are plans to build a crossing between Edward Green and Village Green Avenue.
Mrs Howe added: "Other people have tried to do this before but they didn't get anywhere.
"This time, fortunately, the council are acting.
"I am really relieved about it. It is really good because someone will get killed otherwise."
Councillor Melanie Stevens, Biggin Hill ward councillor, said: "When this location was reviewed in the past, a pedestrian crossing has not been warranted as surveys showed that not many pedestrians have used this location to cross the road.
"However, this has changed and consultation about a proposed zebra crossing has now closed and the council is now examining the responses received."
