TfL: Map shows all north London road deaths last year

Transport for London’s latest data shows 33 people were killed on roads in the area between January and December 2023.

Enfield was the north London borough with the most fatalities – 12, accounting for more than a third of the total.

Islington and Haringey had the fewest, recording just a single death each in the whole of last year.

Pedestrians were the most at risk on roads in north London, with 14 killed in 2023.

Five cyclists were also killed last year, as well as five people riding motorbikes.

All three of the deaths in Hackney, including Gao Gao and Harry Webb, were cyclists.

Seven people died in cars, one on a bus and one in a goods vehicle.

The data comes as TfL claims road deaths in London are at their lowest levels outside pandemic years, having fallen by 6% since 2022.

In total, 95 people were killed on the capital’s roads, compared to 102 in the previous year.

Those walking, cycling and motorcycling were deemed most at risk, accounting for 80% of all the people killed or seriously injured.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has now reiterated his ‘Vision Zero’ goal to eliminate death and serious injury from the capital’s streets by 2041.

TfL’s Walking and Cycling Commissioner Will Norman said: “Every death or serious injury on our streets is devastating.

“We’re making significant progress, but we know there is more work to do to eliminate deaths and serious injuries from London’s roads.”

According to the transport body, the number of people killed while cycling has fallen by 40% against a 2010-14 baseline, from 13 to eight.

Data suggests cycling journeys have continued to increase with the number of daily cycle journeys increasing to 1.26 million in 2023, up by 6.3% since 2022.

TfL claims this means cycling trips have become safer overall.

In 2023, there were 252 people seriously injured in collisions involving a TfL bus, including passengers, and six people killed.

This represents a 43% reduction in fatalities involving a bus from the 2010-2014 baseline.

Cars were involved in more than two thirds of casualties on London’s roads. TfL has said it is committed to tackling speeding as well as continuing to reduce speed limits to 20mph.
