The Mayor and Transport for London (TfL) have published ‘Safe Streets for London’, a new road safety plan which sets out a clear path towards helping to reduce death and serious injury on the Capital’s roads. The new plan covers the period until 2020.
The plan builds on solid progress already made by TfL, the London boroughs and the police over the last decade to improve the safety of London’s roads.
Using detailed analysis of how and why people are injured in road collisions in the Capital, and which groups are affected, it looks to ensure that the right measures are being taken to reduce casualties.
Through this approach, and working closely with the boroughs and the police, TfL aims to further reduce death and serious injury on London’s roads by introducing and achieving a target of a 40 per cent drop in KSIs by 2020.
This will allow the Capital to make significant progress towards the ultimate ambition – a London road network free from death and serious injury.
