Assemble 6pm, finish 7pm
Assembly point: “In Town” sculpture – this is a large paved garden area with dropped kerb entry to it at the southern side of the bridge.
We’re asking people – local residents, people using the bridge, London Cycling Campaign members, supporters, and the wider cycling community – to attend what will be a solemn cycle protest across the bridge, marking the toll of ongoing collisions here.
One month after a 27 year old woman was killed while cycling across Battersea Bridge, London Cycling Campaign will assemble to sombrely protest ongoing dangerous conditions on Battersea Bridge and in the surrounding area.
We want rapid action, safe cycling and an end to the toll of serious and fatal collisions here.
Transport for London, the Mayor, Wandsworth and Kensington & Chelsea Councils have presided over delays and action in the area for decades despite the bridge and surrounds being infamous for dangerous and hostile cycling conditions. As a result, we’ve seen far too many horrific collisions on the bridge, at its junctions at each end and in the broader area. We want safe cycling here now – and we need an urgent look at conditions on both sides of the river and across the river across west London.
