Cycle Safety Action Plan

PDF 1.33MB

The objectives of the plan are to:

  • Ensure the growth of cycling in London is accompanied by a reduced rate of cycling casualties
  • Increase the perception that cycling is a safe and attractive transport option
  • Make progress towards achieving existing and future targets for reducing cyclists killed or seriously injured
  • Ensure London continues to be a world leader in developing effective cycling safety improvements, underpinned by analysis and a sound understanding of the causes of collisions

Here are three examples of our Cycle Safety Action Plan in action:

Crossrail lorry training

Large numbers of lorry drivers are working on the Crossrail project. To make sure they drive safely near cyclists, we give truck drivers special cycle awareness training.

Goods vehicle technology

We're encouraging heavy goods vehicle operators to fit special cycle safety technology on their vehicles. This includes sensors and cameras that tell a driver when a cyclist or pedestrian is near.

Cycle Skills

Whether you're a first-time rider or a regular cyclist looking to improve your skills, we fund free, tailored courses to suit your individual abilities and goals. Free to anyone who lives, works or studies in London.

Did you know we work with FORS and offer Exchanging Places so Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) drivers and cyclists are aware of one another on London's roads.

Watch a training video for HGV drivers and cyclists on our cycling safety advice page.
