Cyclists in London could be given a headstart at traffic lights on particularly busy junctions under a review into how to cut the toll of cycling deaths and injuries in the capital.
Transport for London (TfL) is to examine more than 500 junctions to see how they can be made more safe for cyclists. Last year 16 cyclists died in London, including two within three weeks at one junction, Bow roundabout, in the east of the city.
