Dangerous Junctions

Junctions are where almost all cyclist fatalities happen - fixing them is the most important thing we can do to make cycling in London safer

Share

We’re pushing the Mayor, TfL and councils to be bolder, fix our junctions faster, and make our roads safer for cycling.

Junctions are where almost all cyclist fatalities happen. Many have been known to be dangerous for years without action being taken. We need to keep this issue in the spotlight so funding is made available and barriers to progress are removed.

Why junctions are so important

When junctions are made safe the pay back is huge – they unlock miles of new cycle routes and make cycling safer for thousands of people. Right now, fixing junctions is one of the most important things we can do to make cycling in London safer.

What we’re calling for

LCC has identified some of the London junctions that most need urgent action. We’re calling on the Mayor, TfL and borough councils to make rapid, temporary improvements; followed by a programme of permanent improvements that comprehensively remove all critical safety failures.

What we’re doing next

Starting with Kings Cross and Old Street, LCC will run individual campaigns to drive rapid change at some of the most dangerous junctions in London. We’ll be working with consultants to identify quick, affordable solutions to make these junctions safe.

We are also keeping the pressure on TfL, boroughs and the Mayor to make sure there is political will to make all the junctions we have identified safer. There are quick temporary solutions that can be put in whilst longer-term and more comprehensive solutions are planned out.
