Transport for London – Safe Streets for London: Making cycling, walking and motorcycling safer in London

Safer Road Users, 2016

Transport for London (TfL) and the Mayor of London have an ambition to work together towards roads free from death and serious injury.

Pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists who together make up around 80 per cent of all those killed or seriously injured on London’s roads are the prime focus of ‘Safe Streets for London’, a comprehensive road safety plan underpinned the ambition to free London’s roads from killed and serious injury casualties.
Innovative analysis, determined ambition and positive leadership combine to ensure that the safety of London’s vulnerable road users continues to improve. This uncompromising focus on vulnerable road user safety sets an international benchmark.

TfL aims to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured (KSI) on London’s roads by 50 per cent by 2020 (stretched from 40 per cent) from the 2005-09 baseline.

TfL’s long term commitment to road safety is supported by a doubling of funding to road safety over the next decade. This significant increase is to ensure that the actions set out in the vulnerable road user plans are adequately resourced to deliver the significant reduction in KSIs required.
