Vigil at fatal junction tomorrow 6pm

The excellent London Cycling Campaign, Road Peace and London Living Streets invite cyclists, pedestrians and motor vehicle users who want to make our roads safe for all to use to a vigil at the junction of Euston/Pentonville Roads and York Way – close to the ghost bike for Deep Lee (Min Joo Lee). 6pm Tuesday 20 December  2011.

At present, the Mayor of London and Transport for London’s roads policies are shaped by their priority of smoothing traffic flow. This means shifting as many motor vehicles as possible through London’s roads. We want that policy priority to change. We want safe streets designed with the needs of each different type of road user in mind – not just cars, buses and lorries. 

Our capital should be a walking city. There’s no reason why not. Our capital should be a cycling city. There’s no reason why not. Our capital should not be a perilous place, it should not be off putting to arrive here at the biggest transport hub in Europe and have to dodge vast amounts of traffic. Where is the vision? Where is the imagination? Where is the humanity?

Please join the vigil tomorrow at 6pm.
