Thoughts are with the rider who could lose both legs.
not a nice stretch that - between the bollards for the helipad, the bollards for the hotels, the fencing for the construction, the storage of range rovers from the dealership, the light industrial units, the builders & add to all that the typical traffic of the riverside.
Healing thoughts to the rider!

That sounds horrible, sickening if it turns out to be what is feared.
Just had a look at this on an on-line map--what a bizarre place for a crash like that, it's not a through route to anywhere. So unlucky.
The south side of that road is currently a construction site.
It's confusing which roads are open to public use and which are construction vehicles only
it is a through road - it's the thames path
My last experience cycling along that way two weeks ago was that the Thames Path was interrupted by a construction site hoarding and then I was left to make my own way around with no signed diversion. Honestly couldn't tell if I cycled across the site traffic areas or not but there was nothing to encourage or discourage me to interact with the site differently.
It's a dead ended road that joins two shared use pavement sections of cycle path.
How awful; fingers crossed for the rider.
Sounds horrific..pull through buddy
Yes, it's not a through route, and normally crashes happen where people are in a hurry to cross a junction or make a turn. At major construction sites, there should be staff on hand to act as banksmen and to generally supervise lorry traffic and its interaction with other road users. There must have been multiple failures here for this to happen.
How terrible. That used to be my commute. There were range rovers parked all over the place from that dealership, and regular construction / hotel delivery lorries / posh cars headed to the helipad to negotiate.
