The junction linking Lensfield Road, Trumpington Street and The Fen Causeway, has been judged the worst in the city, with 36 crashes between 2005 and 2010 involving cyclists and vehicles.

Most of the worst offenders in the top 10 table are in the south-east of the city.

Kevin O'Sullivan, Levenes Cycle Injury Partner said: “Cambridge is a wonderful cycling template for other towns and cities to follow, but there are still junctions where cyclists need to take particular care and where road engineers might need to revisit their designs .This list will help both Cambridge road user and planner alike.”
