Cyclist death junction 'dropped from safety review list'

The central London junction where a cyclist was killed this morning was dropped from a list of areas due to be overhauled as part of safety improvements, a London Assembly member has claimed.

Ludgate Circus was on Transport For London's original list of 100 junctions deemed to have safety concerns, however it was later removed from the list when it was revised down to 33.

London Assembly member Darren Johnson accused TFL of failing to act despite a spate of deaths and injuries in recent years:

This absolutely tragic news is made all the more poignant by the fact that TfL recently decided to cancel the major safety overhaul it had deemed necessary at this blackspot.

Six cyclists were killed or seriously injured here in the space of five years yet despite this dreadful toll TfL aren’t going to get this junction sorted out.

We are seeing this pattern of inaction all across the road network in London and it is unacceptable.

– Darren Johnson, London Assembly Member

Boris Johnson baffled over New Year fare rises

Boris Johnson struggled to work out how much he would have to pay in the New Year when fares go up. On LBC 97.3 he was asked how much a one-way ticket from Angel to London Bridge would cost. The Mayor referred to a series of tables, and then got the figure wrong saying:

"It seems unbelievably expensive to me. That's outrageous. That cannot possibly be right."
