Asked Of: 
The Mayor


Florence Eshalomi AM:  Just on the Business Plan, Mr Mayor, I am sure you will be aware of Monday’s tragic accident on the South Circular, near the Tulse Hill gyratory, where a young woman lost her life.  Four vehicles, two cars and two trucks, ran over her and no one stopped.  In the last business plan your predecessor did look at this and my predecessor, Valerie Shawcross CBE, is also looking at the Tulse Hill gyratory.  In that Business Plan your predecessor did state that the Tulse Hill gyratory would be excluded in the ten‑year Business Plan, which is currently scheduled for delivery in 2020/21.  Following Monday’s tragic accident and an accident earlier this year in February, can you update me on when this scheme will be delivered?  Is it still going to be delivered by 2020/21?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Sadiq Khan (Mayor of London):  First, I know your thoughts, but all of our thoughts are with the poor woman who lost her life as a consequence in the accident in Tulse Hill earlier this week. 


The current plan is as you say but I am very happy for you to meet with Valerie [Shawcross CBE, Deputy Mayor for Transport] to see if we can accelerate that.  Although the Vision Zero work we are doing will lead to huge improvements going forward, it is clear to me from the reports I have read that this is a hot spot that needs addressing.  Chair, could I, through you, undertake to arrange for the Deputy Mayor for Transport to meet with the Assembly Member to discuss this particular case and see if we can expedite matters?


Jennette Arnold OBE AM (Chair):  Thank you. 


Florence Eshalomi AM:  Thank you.
