Three cyclists, and another 26 people, have lost their lives on London’s roads already this year. This is three times the number of people killed in the same period in 2014.
As a result, the Metropolitan Police have taken the decision to re-launch Operation Safeway, which started in 2013 after six cyclists were killed in just two weeks.
The operation will involve the deployment of more than 600 police officers at 166 key junctions in the city during morning and evening rush hours. The operation will last for six weeks.
