Question

In your response to Q848/2013 you incorrectly stated that there have been no pedestrian fatalities caused by TfL buses since 2009. Will you correct your response to take into account the death of a 47 year old Spanish woman who was killed after being hit by a number 29 bus on Charing Cross Road (Cambridge Circus) on 30 December 2012?

The Mayor

The response to MQ848 / 2013 correctly stated that there have been no pedestrian fatalities on Oxford Street (Marble Arch to Tottenham Court Road) resulting from collisions with a bus or coach since 2009.

Unfortunately a pedestrian fatality occurred on Charing Cross Road on 30 December 2012. This information would not be included in the analysis of pedestrian casualties on Oxford Street, the area defined as Marble Arch to Tottenham Court Road, as the fatality occurred on Charing Cross Road.
