LCC thanks supporters as Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham become latest to sign our 'Safer Lorries' pledge

LCC has thanked its supporters for sending nearly 3000 messages to councils, calling on them to take our 'Safer Lorries, Safer Cycling' pledge, and is urging anyone who hasn't written to do so today.

The call comes as Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham announce they're the latest two councils to sign the 'Safer Lorries, Safer Cycling' pledge.

Seven councils have now signed LCC's pledge to only use the best-trained lorry drivers and the lorries with the best safety equipment available. 

Last week LCC local groups protested outside borough town halls, calling on councils to take the pledge. 

LCC's chief executive Ashok Sinha said:

"We thank the thousands of our supporters who've put pressure on their councils to take our 'Safer Lorries, Safer Cycling' pledge.

"And we're delighted Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham councillors have committed to only using the safest lorries and drivers in future.

"We hope their actions spur on other London boroughs that consider themselves cycle-friendly – Camden, Hackney, Lambeth and many others – to also take our pledge, helping to prevent cyclist deaths on our streets."

Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, Ealing Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport, said:

"Road safety is a priority for us and we want to do what we can to avoid any more cyclists losing their lives in accidents involving lorries in this borough.

"By signing up to the campaign we are demonstrating our commitment to making cycling safer for everyone in Ealing.”

Councillor Victoria Brocklebank-Fowler, H&F Council Cabinet Member for Transport & Technical Services, said:

"Around a half of all cyclist deaths on our roads are caused by heavy lorries – which only make up about 5% of the traffic in the borough.

"Given this stark reality, the council is delighted to commit to only using the best-trained drivers and safest lorries in order to reduce road danger for anyone cycling or walking in the borough.

"As the recipient of a London Cycling Award for our previous efforts on lorry driver training, we are determined to remain one of the leading boroughs for cycle safety."

Last week, LCC published designs for its new Safer Urban Lorry (see photo top), which it's calling on the construction industry to adopt in coming years.
