Question

On 27 March, one of my constituents, Mr Frank Mugisha, was tragically killed by a car while cycling near the junction of the A10 and White Hart Lane. A police investigation is underway into his death. Is Transport for London undertaking its own investigation into this incident? If so can you advise whether the speed and / or junction layout was a factor in this instance?

I was deeply saddened to hear of this tragic incident and I extend my condolences to Mr Mugisha's family and friends.

As you note, a Metropolitan Police investigation is ongoing into this collision and, as is normal, TfL is assisting the Police as required.

At this stage there has been no indication that speed or junction layout were a factor, but TfL will closely consider any findings or recommendations produced once the investigation is complete.
