200+ Cyclists Injured in 6 Years at TfL's 14 "Challenging" Junctions

Following the launch of The Times' Cycle Safe campaign, TfL has announced that they will be looking at 14  junctions where no scheme is planned, but where it is felt that there are "particular challenges" for cyclists.

These junctions are listed below along with a screen shot of the area from our Accident Map and a count of the number of dots (which represent injured cyclists) at the junction and it's approaches. Click on the images to browse the area and view details on every accident.

The accident data is supplied by the Department For Transport and is for 2005-2010. 2011 data will be added to the Accident Map as soon as it is released.

Albert Embankment (Lambeth Bridge/Lambeth Road) Lambeth - 33 Accidents
Euston Circus (Euston Road / Tottenham Court Road / Hampstead Road) Camden - 20 Accidents
Highbury Corner Islington - 21 Accidents
Monument Way / The Hale Haringey, The Hale / Broad Lane Haringey, Tottenham High Road / Monument Way Haringey, Tottenham High Road / Philip Lane Haringey, Tottenham High Road / Seven Sisters Road Haringey, Tottenham High Road / Town Hall Approach Road Haringey, Tottenham High Road / West Green Road Haringey - 25 Accidents
Queens Road / Asylum Road Southwark - 5 Accidents
St George’s Circus (Blackfriars Road / London Road / Borough Road) Southwark - 12 Accidents
Swiss Cottage Gyratory Camden - 14 Accidents
Waterloo (including IMAX roundabout – York Road / Stamford Road / Waterloo Road / Waterloo Bridge) Lambeth - 70+ Accidents
The conclusion? They're a good start, but by no means the most dangerous for cyclists. Kings Cross and Elephant and Castle are two that spring to mind.
