Dear Mr Gannon

 

TfL Ref: 1353-1718

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 5
September 2017 asking for a list and content of all public statements made
by Cycling and Walking Commissioner, Will Norman, on cyclist and
pedestrian deaths since his appointment in February 2017.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and our information access policy. 

 

Will Norman has not made public comments on individual cycle and
pedestrian deaths since his appointment. The most appropriate response in
the immediate aftermath of such tragic incidents is from the police and
TfL’s operational teams.

 

Every death is a needless tragedy, the human cost of which should never be
forgotten. That is why TfL is investing billions of pounds to create
Healthy Streets, where walking and cycling are safe, and removing the most
dangerous lorries from our roads.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal.

 

Yours sincerely
