A group of protesters campaigning for increased road safety in the Uxbridge Road will march through Ealing on Saturday (October 28).

Supported by the Ealing Cycling Campaign, the protest is calling on Transport for London and Ealing Council to “take action and make the road safe for all”.

Campaigners say the authorities need to review safety measures in regards to the “dangerous junctions” and protect “vulnerable road users” from harm.

The protest comes two weeks after a former Metropolitan Police officer was involved in a fatal collision with a lorry while cycling in the busy road.

Claudia Manera, 51, died in hospital on October 19, one week after suffering “serious injuries” to her legs and pelvis at the junction with The Broadway.

Within the past five years, another cyclist and two pedestrians were also killed on the busy road.

During the same period, more than 300 people were injured - 46 of them seriously.

Speaking ahead of the march, campaigner Andy Hillier said: “Groups have called for significant improvements to the road for years, but more needs to be done.

“What's become really clear is there's a real, genuine concern about the Uxbridge Road and its overall effect on Ealing – not only in terms of cyclists but pedestrians too.

“I think there's a fundamental question that needs to be addressed, primarily by the council, about what is the future of the road and how do we make it a more safe and pleasant environment.”

The march will take place from Ealing Town Hall on Saturday (October 28)

Campaigners also suggest the council and TfL need to commit to the changes by providing the funding required to implement the additional safety measures.

The protest will start outside Ealing Town Hall at 10.30am on Saturday (October 28) and will march to the Lido junction near Dean Gardens on the Uxbridge Road - where the fatal accident occurred.

Families with young children, wheelchair users, pedestrians, runners and cyclists are all being encouraged to take part and raise awareness for the campaign.

After brief speeches and a minute's silence, the event will finish at about 11.30am.

Ealing Council leader Julian Bell will be attending and will speak as part of the campaign, alongside Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for transport, environment and leisure.

Mr Hillier added: “We don't want any more of these incidents, it's just unacceptable.

“What we've seen from central London is that, when you invest in your infrastructure, you see a real human benefit in that you are reducing risks and you reduce these kinds of incidents from happening.

“We want to see the bold innovative projects which are happening in central London, along Oxford Circus, for example, take place here in Ealing and we want a commitment as to when that will happen.”
