London

Cycling UK has today (Friday, 30 September 2016) announced its delight at London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s promise “to ensure the most dangerous zero star-rated lorries are removed from our road”.

 
 
Gail Purcell (58) of Colney Street, St Albans, the driver involved in the death of cyclist Mick Mason, received a summons on Saturday (6 August) to attend Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 6 September 2016 for the offence of causing death by careless driving contrary to section 2B of the Road Traffic Act 1988. This case was brought forward as a private prosecution by Cycling UK’s CDF.

 
 
CTC has welcomed the announcement from Transport for London on 1 February of the launch of a new bus safety programme, set to incentivise safety in its contracts. CTC has called for an extension of this programme to cover the whole of the UK and to include lorries.

CTC's Campaigns Director Roger Geffen argues that Boris's "finger-pointing" is pointed in the wrong direction, and calls for real solutions to the dangers faced by pedestrians as well as cyclists.

 
 
CTC demands action on cyclists’ safety in London after a fifth cyclist is killed in ten days on the capital’s roads.

 
 
A new road safety plan for the next 7 years has been launched for London. CTC was critical of earlier drafts for failing to include the means to measure the risks of cycling, rather than simply the number of people seriously injured or killed.

 
 
The London Assembly Transport Committee is calling on the Mayor to provide much better facilities for cycling, hugely increase the budget, and set a higher target for cycle use.

 
 
Transport for London has just released proposed new junction designs to improve conditions for cyclists. These schemes involve very minor changes to the road layouts, which in themselves may make conditions slightly easier but they show little sign of innovative or bold thinking.

It was a cold evening session at Leyton Square in Southwark, for People Empowering People Bike Club, but no one seemed to mind. The maintenance session was inundated with keen young people who wanted to fix their bikes or earn a bike for themselves by working on one donated by the local police.
