Further to your reply to Question 2018/1301, please provide an update as to when a plaque will be installed at Fisher Street Headhouse to commemorate Renè Tkàčik who tragically died while working on the project in 2014.  Please also state whether there are any plans relating to memorialising the three cyclists and one pedestrian killed by Crossrail Contractors' lorries between 14 November 2010 and 10 February 2016?

A date to unveil the plaque for Renè Tkáčik has not yet been confirmed. I have asked Transport for London to let you know once it has been agreed.


It is vital that we learn from the tragic deaths of Maria Karsa, Brian Holt, Ted Wood, Claire Hitier-Abadie and all those who have tragically died on our roads. In doing so we can reduce road danger and work towards my goal of eliminating deaths and serious injuries from London’s streets.
