My Safer Junctions programme is based on analysis of casualties at junctions, identifying the locations with the poorest safety records.  Although the junctions to which you refer were on the 100 Better Junctions programme, they are no longer within the worst performing group when their safety record is analysed. Of the 100 Better Junctions originally identified, 33 were part of the final programme.  Further improvements are planned at those in the following list as part of the wider Healthy Streets programme:

- Apex Corner / Hampton Road West

- Great West Road / Shield Drive

- Great West Road / Chiswick High Road

- Kew Bridge / Spring Grove / Key Bridge Road

- Bromley Common / Oakley Road

- Great Cambridge Road / Hoe Lane

- Great Cambridge Road / White Hart Lane

- Hook Road / Bridge Road

- London Road Roundabout (Chertsey Road / London Road)

- Upper Richmond Road West / Sheen Lane

In addition, improvement work has also been completed at Shooters Hill / Stratheden Road, Collier's Wood High Street / Christchurch Road and at Tottenham Hale Gyratory.

Casualty analysis will now continue each year as part of a new approach that will see work continually monitored and the junctions with the most incidents prioritised.
