• This is the scene of the crash:

    No details on what exactly happened.

    It's depressing to suddenly find out that four people have already been killed cycling this year.

    Most of the HGV fatalities from the London construction boom 10+ years ago were in Central and Inner London (and the percentage of fatal cyclist crashes involving HGVs was significantly higher than 41%), and all the crashes that have happened so far are further out. I suppose Harlesden still counts as Inner London, but it's quite a long way west. The A404 High Street is the continuation of the A404 Harrow Road, of course.

    In the pandemic, given much higher activity levels away from Central London, you would expect more crashes to occur elsewhere, but it's still exceptionally bad news. I wonder if the inquests will be reported on.

  • Oh no :( This one has struck home hard. That is a junction I have used so regularly, often on the way home from Wests...
    I'm curious as to direction of travel etc. Who knows if any more details are released.

    Rest in peace

    There are huge developments near Willesden at the moment. The new Old Oak Station and HS2 work is on the scale of the Paddington Basin development. Hence lots of HGVs.

    The lack of reporting of these deaths is terrible.

    Rip rider.
