Cavendish Road cycle lane action following cyclist death

We are sad to report the death of a cyclist following a collision with a van on Cavendish Road on the Clapham/ Balham border, Lambeth SW12.

Cyclist Johannah Bailey was killed after being hit on the morning of Sunday 31 July.

Following the death we and LCC central stated our concerns over this junction to London Assembly Members Valerie Shawcross and Caroline Pidgeon, amongst others, at a site visit.

We highlighted to TfL the fact that cyclists had to cross multiple lanes of traffic when coming from the South Circular and that the off road cycle facility is not effective: using it requires cyclists to wait at three sets of traffic lights which means that many cyclists do not use it. We recommended that TfL undertake work to improve the facility and reduce the danger to cyclists at this junction.
