Deptford junction is among Britain's top cycle injury hotspots

As part of its campaign to increase cycling in British cities The Times has worked with Esri UK to produce an interactive map, which documents each incident in which a cyclist was injured or killed in 2014. With 75% of incidents taking place at a junction, they have listed the eight most dangerous junctions in Britain - and Deptford features.

The junction of Evelyn Street and Grinstead Road (the corner of Deptford Park) produced seven casualties last year, making it the second-most-dangerous junction in London and the third in Britain. One of Deptford's dangerous junctions is being improved, but not this one.

Overall, the density of injuries is lower in South East London than in other parts of the capital, but that almost certainly reflects the lower density of development and employment and the lack of Boris Bike provision.

With thanks to Mark from the London Assembly LibDems for the information.
