Safety concerns about a Holland Park road that has been the site of two fatal accidents have sparked an investigation.
In 2007, respected resident Nick Bancroft (pictured) died after being hit by a bicycle while crossing Royal Crescent. He had lived in the area for over 30 years and has been described by those who knew him as a 'devoted family man.'
This year, another person died at the junction of St Anne's Villas and Royal Crescent - prompting neighbours to tell the council their concerns about the suspected black spot.
Now Royal Borough traffic experts are set to look at Royal Crescent, to analyse whether it needs to be changed to prevent further tragedies.
A Kensington and Chelsea Council spokesman said: "Traffic management options for Royal Crescent are due to be investigated in next year's work programme. Whilst there have been two unfortunate fatal accidents over the past year, there is no immediate specific evidence to suggest that either the road layout or traffic conditions were contributory factors.
"Prior to these accidents, there were no recorded personal injury accidents in the road. However, an objective view will be taken."
If an appropriate scheme to change the road emerges, subject to funding being approved, it could be implemented in the 2010 or 2011.
