Answer for Blackfriars Road

Answer for Blackfriars Road

Answered By: 
The Mayor

In the three years from July 2003 to June 2006, there have been 38 collisions reported on Blackfriars Road between St George's Circus and Stamford Street. Three of these collisions resulting in serious casualties. Of the 38 collisions, 8 had speed identified as a contributory factor. This relatively low proportion is consistent with the London-wide position and does not justify specific speed-related intervention on this road.
