Look out for each other, says TfL

Leon Daniels from Transport for London offered his deepest sympathies after the latest death and appealed for all road users to look out for each other.

We are deeply saddened by this incidentand our thoughts are also with the family and friends of the other cyclists whohave recently lost their lives.

Cycling in London is growing, with almost double the number of cycle journeys on main roads in the capital than ten years ago. We are investing heavily in our cycling programme and our aim is to make cycling as safe as possible, with measures such as improved cycle routes and junctions across London.

The safety of all road users is and remains a key priority for us. We have a number of safety campaigns targeting both drivers and cyclists underway across London which highlight the issues which could cause collisions. We would appeal to everyone to look out for each other and follow the rules of the road to remain safe."

– Leon Daniels, Managing Director of TfL Surface Transport
