The attached email received from TFL on 29 January 2020 states that during the last 5 years there have been 27 personal injury collisions recorded, resulting in 31 people being injured 1 x fatality, 4 x serious and 26 x slights.

This information does not specify exactly where these incidents have occurred. Our request is whether you are able to annotate the attached area map and/or confirm whether any, and how many, of the recorded collisions occurred within the specific area shown on the jpeg map, or whether the recorded incidents are all outside of this area. We look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. I attach a copy of the jpeg depicting the area of interest for the accident data (attached in a separate email).

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 14 April 2020 asking for information about locations of collisions within 50m of the junction of Clapham High Street/A2217/Clapham Park Road/The Pavement) in the last five years.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can confirm that we hold some of the information you require.

In our customer services response of 29 January 2020 you were advised that for the area approximately 50m around the site you identified (which is the junction of Clapham High Street/A2217/Clapham Park Road/The Pavement), there had been 27 personal injury collisions recorded, resulting in 31 people being injured 1 x fatality, 4 x serious and 26 x slights. These collisions occurred for the five year period up to end April 2019.

Please see the attached extracted from our database using the plot showing the area used for your original request and personal injury collisions recorded by the Police for the five year period to the end of April 2019. Please note that the data is still provisional. There were 27 collisions in this five year period.

Unfortunately, we are unable to add to the map you have provided or show the collision reference or collision date etc, however, the plot we’ve provided does show the collision location and severity.

You may want to have a look at the London Collision Map website also shows collisions in map form, and includes casualty details which can be accessed by clicking on each collision; please note that data on the London Collision Map is available to the end of 2018 only. The link is as follows:
