Cyclist protest

Post  LeeRain on Sat Nov 12, 2011 10:36 pm


The London Cycling Campaign (LCC) group demanded an immediate redesign of the roundabout.

It said the roundabout was dangerous because the cycle superhighway stopped in the middle of the Bow roundabout.

LCC's chief executive Ashok Sinha said: "We're appalled at this latest preventable death and are fearful of what may happen when large numbers of cyclists are expected to tackle this junction on their way to and from the Olympics next year.

"We can't understand how this junction can form part of what is one of the Mayor's flagship cycling projects: it must be redesigned now."

TfL surface transport manager Leon Daniels said: "We are extremely sorry to learn of the tragic death of a female cyclist, following a collision with an HGV on the Bow Road roundabout on Friday evening.

"Our thoughts are with her family and friends. I have visited the scene and both TfL and the police have launched inquiries which will report as quickly as possible‬."
