I was greatly saddened to hear of the death of Lucia Cicciolo.

I am determined to eliminate deaths and serious injury on our roads. That is why I am adopting a Vision Zero approach to road safety.

TfL is working closely with the police as part of their continuing investigation and will take action on the recommendations which are made as a result.
