Cyclist hits pedestrian on Bank Junction causing possible life changing damage

6 Jun 2018

 

 A pedestrian was hit by a cyclist yesterday at City of London’s Bank Junction and has sustained possible life-changing injuries.  

 

Police were called shortly after 5.30pm on Tuesday 5 June to Bank Junction to a report of a collision between a cyclist and a pedestrian. 

 

According to a City of London Police statement officers attended the scene with paramedics and the pedestrian, a woman in her 50s, was taken to Royal London Hospital with serious injuries. The victim is currently in a stable condition. 


No arrests have been made.

 

The controversial junction has trialed a ban on all motorised traffic, excluding buses, since May last year between 7am-7pm claiming that the “Bank on Safety” will ensure pedestrians safety.

 

The City of London Corporation who manage the junction recently announced that the number of casualties have halved and that the ban could be made permanent.  


The Bank Junction restrictions have been heavily criticised by the Taxi trade as traffic levels soar in neighbouring side roads and journey times doubling in some cases.
