Mayor and TfL set out action to make London's streets safer for cyclists

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, and London's Transport Commissioner, Peter Hendy, will outline yesterday how safety is at the heart of the cycling revolution the Mayor is bringing to the capital.

A range of safety initiatives are underway and all highway maintenance firms working on London's major roads have agreed to fit blind spot mirrors and detection equipment by the end of the year.

The Commissioner has also written to the haulage industry to urge further action to improve safety and, at the London Assembly's Functional Body Question Time at City Hall today, the Mayor will urge cyclists to never cycle up the inside of a Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV).
