London’s walking and cycling commissioner Will Norman today named the 73 junctions in the Capital with the worst safety records as he unveiled a new approach to delivering improvements for pedestrians and cyclists.
Topping the list of dangerous junctions in the capital are Queen Street/ Upper Thames Street in the City of London, followed by key commuter route Fleet Street/ Farringdon Street, Bishopsgate – on which Liverpool Street Station is situated/ Middlesex Street, and Manor Road/ Stamford Hill.
Transport for London’s new analysis uses the last three years of casualty figures on the TfL road network to identify the junctions with the poorest safety records so that they can be targeted for work. This analysis will now continue each year as part of a new approach that will see work continually monitored and the junctions with the most incidents prioritised.
The list of 73 junctions is now being considered in detail to assess what can be done to make them safer. The current list includes some that have had work recently completed, some have work planned, and others require new safety studies.
