After five cyclists have been killed on London’s roads over the past eight days, three in our borough, it is simply not good enough of Boris Johnson’s Cycling Commissioner, Andrew Gilligan, to say; ‘You have to cycle safely at all times. We can only help you so far. We can’t take responsibility for everyone’s safety.’
Boris Johnson has repeatedly ignored demands to make Bow roundabout safer for cyclists and pedestrians.
Today I am asking to meet Mayor Johnson and demand he act immediately to make the Bow roundabout safer and undertake an urgent review of the Cycle Superhighway in Tower Hamlets.
