    London’s most dangerous cycle spots: Southampton Row / Theobalds Road


    London’s most dangerous cycle spots: Southampton Row / Theobalds Road

    Notorious as one of the most dangerous cycle spots in London, the Southampton Row and Theobalds Road junction in Holborn has claimed the lives of three people in cycling accidents since 2008. Out of 77 injuries by vehicle collisions on this junction over the past ten years, 29 injuries were sustained by cyclists.

    About the junction

    The junction consists of three narrow traffic lanes squeezing into a road width of less than ten metres. The junction has no cycle lanes or even traffic lights with cycling-specific cycles. in short, cyclists are hemmed in by heavy, fast moving traffic and have nothing to help them stay safe and prevent being hit by a vehicle while navigating this vast, terrifying junction.

    Bus lanes

    It appears that the council responsible (Camden) is now considering permitting cyclists to use the bus lane (something which cyclists desperate to avoid traffic accidents have been fined for doing in the past). This still leaves cyclists, who make up 64 per cent of traffic on this busy junction, at risk of being hit by a bus. The matter is not helped by parked vehicles and occasionally scaffolding obscuring cyclists’ view and preventing the use of the bus lane.

    If you were injured

    Should you have suffered a cycling injury while navigating this junction, you could be entitled to claim for cycling injury compensation if your road traffic accident:

    • Was caused by another road user
    • Occurred within the past three years
