    Johnson unveils new junction safety measures

    By David Brown on December 10, 2013

    Boris Johnson has pledged to improve road safety at several junctions across London, after a spate of fatal road traffic accidents.

    Cycling accidents require enhanced junction safety measures

    The statement of intent to improve junction safety measures follows the deaths of six cyclists in the capital in two weeks.

    Mr Johnson said that Transport for London will be outlining a programme to make 33 junctions safer over the next few months.

    The London Mayor repeated his claim that cycling in London is getting safer and that the bike deaths should not discourage people from cycling.

    Mr Johnson’s announcement came at a construction logistics and cyclist safety conference in London, an event organised before last month’s accidents.

    The Mayor said there is currently a “growing chorus” of voices who claim that the cycling revolution has been going too fast and that cyclists should be removed from the roads.

    But he added: “This analysis grossly exaggerates my messianic abilities. I am a passionate cyclist, but I am not some kind of Pied Pedaller.”

    Cyclists can ‘help reduce road traffic’

    Mr Johnson said the police’s Operation Safeway had, in recent weeks, resulted in 755 cyclists being fined in a bid to reduce road traffic accidents.

    Offences included jumping red lights, as well as 1,392 motorists being fined for talking on their mobiles or jumping lights.

    He pledged that the cycling revolution will continue and accelerate. Mr Johnson added: “If we can get Londoners on to bikes, we can take the pressure off public transport, we can reduce traffic.”

    But the Green Party claims the safety measures do not go far enough.
