dangerous cycling junctions london

With the cycling community in mind and using government data we have recently developed a map of all reported cycle accidents on the UK roads between 2005 and 2010. Developed further to show “accident clusters”, the map can now be used to pinpoint particularly dangerous areas, roads or junctions where there are clusters of cycling collisions.

Using this official data in conjunction with our map we have compiled the most dangerous junctions for cyclists in London’s in terms of the number of reported cycling accidents. The junctions are listed below, click on the image on the right of this article to enlarge the map. Or click here to browse the Levenes Cycle Injury Accident Map yourself.
