TfL accused of falling short of cyclist safety after death

Transport for London have been accused of overlooking a coroner’s report calling for safety improvement for cyclists in Camberwell Green despite the death of a cyclist two years ago. 

In May 2015, Esther Hartsilver, an NHS physiotherapist at King’s College Hospital, was struck by a HGV making a left turn across the cycling path causing fatal injuries. 

Coroner Sarah Ormond-Walshe found in her report that cycling provisions on the junction were inadequate and called for Southwark Council and TFL to work towards a safer junction between Denmark Hill and Orpheus Street in order to prevent further deaths. 

‘The safety of cyclists should continue to be a major consideration at this junction when the final decisions are made about the larger planned improvement of Camberwell.’ Ms Ormond-Walshe wrote in her report. 

Southwark Council has said it has made steps towards improving the safety at the junction but claims that many of the recommendations in the coroner’s report would lead to a ‘even more dangerous situation further down the road.’ 

Southwark have pledged to add new signs to remind drivers of cyclists whilst also making the entrance to the junction narrower with the hope of slowing traffic. 

In June, Southwark signed off on £2.5 million of road changes which it claims will reduce collisions by 40 per cent. Despite this, co-organiser of Stop Killing Cyclists, Nicola Branch has claimed this will have no effect.

‘There are no measures for safer cycling in any shape or form.’ she told the Evening Standard[1].

‘It’s really awful. You could have safe lanes. You could protect cyclists from left turns. But there is absolutely nothing whatsoever.’

This latest failing will put further pressure on Mayor Sadiq Khan, who has struggled with cycling policy during his tenancy, despite promising to make the capital a ‘byword for cycling’.

Lorry fire and fuel spill on A3 Northbound

Work is still underway to clear up a fuel spillage following a lorry fire on the A3.

 

Emergency services were called to the scene of the incident on the Northbound side, near Liss early on Thursday (August 10) evening.

 

It’s happened at Farnham Road, close to the Liss Turn Off.

 

All traffic was temporarily held for while, which is causing queues in the area.

 

The road was cleared around 6.45pm but emergency services warn it could be closed again due to ‘the complexity of the incident’.
