Target: Tower Hamlets, Highways Agency, Transport for London (Tfl), Department of Transport, Mayor of London

Petition Background (Preamble):

The beautiful, bubbly 26-year-old lady who died tragically on Wednesday 16th September 2009 at the junction between Whitechapel Road and Vallance Road, London, was a dear member of our family.

We want to ensure that she did not die in vain and are campaigning for the redesign of this junction to prevent further tragic deaths.

Several people have been injured or killed at this specific spot in recent years. It is renowned throughout the cyclist community as being dangerous, particularly when travelling south down Vallance Road.

We would like to do everything we can to prevent other families from experiencing a similar tragic loss. PLEASE HELP US SAVE LIVES.

Sign up now and with your support we will work with Tower Hamlets, Tfl and the Highways Agency to make this specific junction and other cyclist blackspots safer.

Moreover we fully support other campaigns (e.g. London 2012 Cycle Safety Campaign and the petition to No 10: http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/LGV-Cycle-Safety/) to ensure lorries are equipped with blind-spot mirrors, increasing safety for cyclists.

Thank you for your attention.

Petition:

We, the undersigned, call on Tower Hamlets Council, Tfl and the Highways agency to work together to redesign the junction at Whitechapel Road and Vallance Road to make it safe for cyclists.
