Investigating TfL’s Better Junctions Scheme

Solicitors in London

News article published on: 28th August 2014

As part of the Mayor’s Vision for Cycling, in March this year Transport for London released a map of 33 priority road junctions that need to be changed in order to benefit cyclists in the capital. Called the ‘Better Junctions’ scheme, it highlights areas where infrastructure needs to be updated in order to increase safety.

We wanted to look further into the background behind TfL’s choice of junctions. Using their publicly accessible Road Safety data, which documents accidents on London’s roads, we mapped out the serious and fatal injuries to cyclists that have occurred from 2010 to 2013 at each of the 33 named junctions. You can now click on the junction number and see a zoomed in map of the specific junction, with the individual accidents mapped on to their exact location.

As well as providing the data behind the 33 priority junctions, we have also discovered other dangerous areas that TfL have not included in their priority list and added them to our updated version of their map. The junctions that we think TfL has overlooked, and should consider adding into their priority list, are marked in orange. The number of serious injuries and deaths that have occurred at these locations lead us to question why they have not also been included as matters of urgency in order to better protect the capital’s cyclists.
