London Cycling Campaign says TfL Road Safety Action Plan must prioritise the most vulnerable

Transport for London’s Road Safety Action Plan must be underpinned by a clear strategy that prioritises the safety of walkers and cyclists and addresses the sources of danger on London’s roads, we've said in our formal response to TfL's consultation.

Given its importance in reducing collisions on our roads over the next eight years, we argue that the Plan needs to be changed from a series of individual actions into a coherent road danger reduction programme.

Responding to the 100-page draft document, we've called for “a clear strategic vision and fully developed policy that aims to make all London streets suitable for cycle use and all road users aware of their responsibilities”.

We highlight the fact that 42,000 people signed our Love London, Go Dutch petition to make London’s streets better for everyone by making as safe and inviting as those in Holland.

We also remind TfL of the Mayor’s support for the petition, and point out that to create a sustainable city the Plan’s intention must be to shift journeys from motor vehicles to safer and more sustainable travel modes.

Non-cyclists and cyclists consistently identify road danger, or perceived road danger, as a key reason for not cycling or not cycling more.

Providing TfL with more than 20 recommendations, we argue that not only must a significant reduction in casualty rates be achieved, but that reducing danger to those on foot, bicycle or motorcycle must be a priority in view of the disproportionate casualty rate in these groups.

The TfL Plan acknowledges that serious cycling casualties increased in 2011.

Ou key recommendations include:

  • TfL to base its plan on the principle of road danger reduction, and consider the wider impacts of its policies on public health and environment, with danger tackled at source, and actions focused on creating safer streets for all road users.
  • TfL to set separate casualty reduction targets, based on KSIs  (people 'Killed and Seriously Injured') per kilometre travelled, for pedestrians, cyclists and powered two-wheelers (motorbikes and scooters).
  • The Mayor should direct that all projects on main roads be designed to facilitate cycling and walking, providing clear space for people who cycle and safe passage through junctions at any time of day.
  • TfL should introduce 20mph limits on the TLRN (TfL-controlled roads) where required as allowed by recent changes in government guidance.
  • All London boroughs and other lorry operators to be encouraged to adopt the terms of the TfL procurement policy for freight operators.
