At an inquest into the death of a cyclist at a notorious junction in Camden, the Coroner, Mary Hassell, heard evidence that there have been 3 cyclist deaths at the junction in the last 10 years, with a total of  77 injury collisions now reported for this location. London Cycling Campaign have been campaigning for a safe cycling boulevard in this area to help prevent these tragedies. At the moment the road approaching the junction is less than 10 metres wide but manages to squeeze in 3 lanes for traffic, with no safe lane for cyclists, so it is difficult for them to reach the advanced stop line at the junction as they are trapped by the traffic. The Coroner expressed concerns at the road layout and is going to send a Prevention of Future Deaths report to Camden Council making some recommendations.
