Oh shit. I came through that junction yesterday around 4.30pm, it’s on my usual commute. Police and forensics everywhere, guys taking photos with markings on the road and all that. They were concentrating the corner of Beulah Hill turning west into Crown Lane towards Streatham Common.
It’s not a particularly dangerous junction and it’s well filtered and signalled, with cycle safe boxes on all four points. I guess we’ll find out in time.
Don't want to speculate, but if they were turning right off Knights to take Crown Lane in direction of Streatham Common then the area where traffic waits to turn left/right across the junction is quite sketchy, especially for cyclists.
Edit: Added a screengrab from Google Maps. Lots of traffic. The driving around West Norwood and the surrounding areas can be... 'below-average' at the best of times.
