A map of London including Ealing has revealed the most dangerous junctions for cycling and walking across the borough and the capital.
The London Cycling Campaign has published the interactive map which also reveals the most dangerous junctions for pedestrians as well as those who cycle. The data is based on the emergency services Stats19 which covers the years 2018-2022.
In Ealing, the most dangerous junction for cyclists is next to Ealing Common Station where Uxbridge Road meets Leopold Road and Wolverton Gardens. Over the last five years, five cyclists have been seriously injured here and nine slightly injured. The main cause of injuries is motorists turning right and colliding with people cycling along the Uxbridge Road.
For pedestrians in Ealing, two walkers have been killed in the last five years and two slightly injured on Southall High Street near Avenue Road. As well as being the most dangerous in Ealing, the junction is also the most dangerous in London.

Tom Fyans, chief executive, London Cycling Campaign saiid: “Behind this horrific data are hundreds of stories of families torn apart by tragedy and lives changed forever. The Mayor has committed to a ‘Vision Zero’ of London by 2041 – but that would mean over 17 years more fatal and serious collisions for Londoners.”
Mr Fryans added: “Whilst cycling and indeed walking and wheeling remain relatively safe, healthy ways of getting about London, TfL, the Mayor and our boroughs must move faster and be bolder on road danger to stem the human cost posed by dangerous junctions and poor road designs.”
