Map and photos showing cycling facilities at the Lea Interchange during the Olympic Games

The photos and map below show the likely route taken by cyclist Dan Harris, moments before he was hit by a left-turning bus at the Lea Interchange, on the edge of the Olympic Park.

Our evidence suggests the victim was following signage and cycling provision in a common-sense manner, and that this provision may have led him into a location that presented a high degree of risk from being hit by a left-turning vehicle.

Documents from Transport for London, released under a freedom of information request, highlight the inability of TfL Safety Audits to identify and rectify road layouts that are hazardous to cycling.

You can download a larger version of the above image or look at the individual image below or on Picasa.

1.Blue sign indicates cycling is allowed (pictured below)

The blue sign here clearly indicates that cycling in this direction is permitted. There's no instruction to use the pavement on the right-hand side of the road, and the pavement on the left ends very soon, making the carriageway the natural option.

2. Further along the road

Here, a blue directional sign (to the right of the image below) invites cyclists already on the right-hand pavement to cross to the left-hand pavement. However, most people at this point would be cycling on the carriageway and nothing tells these people cycling is permitted on the left-hand pavement.

3. Approaching the fatality junction

Approaching the junction where the fatality took place, there's still no indication that cycling on the left-hand pavement is permitted (see below). Nor is there a sign explaining that cycling in this left-hand Games Lane is not permitted (most left-hand Games Lanes were open to cyclists). An arrow on the road tells you this lane is for left turns.

4. Looking at the fatality junction

Buses typically take this corner a long way from the kerb (as shown in the image below) to allow themselves room to turn, leaving a large gap on their left-hand side and then swinging sharply to their left. It causes a serious hazard to cyclists who can only travel straight ahead and it is difficult to judge if a bus would simply go left or do a U-turn.
