4th March: Vigil in Holborn

LCC is set to hold a vigil, Friday 4th March, 6pm following another Holborn cycling fatality.

To mark the tragic death of yet another cyclist in the Holborn one way system, the London Cycling Campaign will be holding a vigil outside Holborn Station at 6pm, Friday 4th March. Please gather at 6pm to show respect for the victims who have died at this location. Candles will be lit and a short statement made.

We will be protesting the continued lack of action to deal with road danger at this hazardous junction where eight cyclists have died in collisions since 2008. The most recent, prior to this week’s sad death, was that of Doctor Marta Krawiec last September, just north of Holborn Station. At that location, temporary changes were made within weeks following that fatality. We urge London’s authorities to act swiftly here also – but more, not to wait for yet another predictable fatality or serious collision at such a location before taking action.

At this stage emergency services have confirmed that the latest collision took place in High Holborn near the junction with Procter Street and that it involved an HGV.

The LCC is also looking for marshals to help with this event. If you can help (experience neded) please email Mike.McSherry@lcc.org.uk
