There was traffic chaos on the Uxbridge Road this Wednesday evening (10 October) after another collision in which a cyclist was injured.

It happened on the stretch of the road heading into the town centre in West Ealing and witnesses report seeing blood on the bonnet of a nearby car and say the man appeared to have been quite badly hurt and was being treated by paramedics at the scene.

Uxbridge Road has long been a source of anger for cyclists who last year took part in a mass demonstration following the death of 51 year old Claudia Manera.

The former police officer received serious injuries after a traffic collision involving a lorry, she was airlifted to hospital but died a few days later.

Hundreds of people, supported by the Ealing Cycling Campaign took part in a mass march to ' Make Uxbridge Road safer'  and called on Ealing Council and Transport For London for a road safety review.

There is currently a survey regarding safety on the Uxbridge Road but notably this focuses on the pedestrian's experience.

Ealing's Council Leader Julian Bell, himself a keen cyclist has called for segregated cycle lanes to give cyclists more protection.

What can be done to improve safety for cyclists on the Uxbridge Road? Discuss on the forum.
