Robert Goodwill, minister for road safety and for cycling is to tour London’s most dangerous places for cycling.
Robert Goodwill, who, as the roads safety minister, is in charge of cycling said: “I am determined to make cycling even safer…as the number of cyclists on our roads continues to rise…. My officials have devised a route for me that will allow me to experience both the worst and the best of cycling roads in London.”
He added: “If we are going to improve cycling safety in London significantly, we will have to reduce the threat of trucks where full segregation is not possible.”
The Department for Transport will be looking closely at early start signals at traffic lights and “we should also examine some other ideas” including looking at increasing the number of HGVs which should be compulsorily fitted with side guards.
