Question

I have been contacted by a constituent who has informed me that your response to Q848/2013 cited incomplete pedestrian collision data. The constituent believes the 2009 data did not include the month of January, and the 2010 data did not include January and December. In previous years (2006-8 and 2011) these months showed a significantly higher number of casualties because of the increased footfall due to seasonal sales. You also did not provide information for 2012. Please provide a complete data set showing pedestrian casualties from 2009-2012, which includes all months.

The Mayor

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received on 1 July 2013

The response to MQ 848/2013 provided complete annual figures for the number of pedestrians injured in collisions with a bus or coach on Oxford Street (Marble Arch to Tottenham Court Road) between 2008 and 2011. It is incorrect to suggest that incomplete pedestrian collision data for January 2009 or January and December 2010 was cited. Table 1 below shows that no pedestrians were injured in collisions with a bus or coach on Oxford Street during January 2009 or during January and December 2010. Complete casualty figures for 2012 were not available at the time of the question.

Table 2 shows the number of pedestrians injured in all collisions on Oxford Street, by month between 2009 and 2012.
