Russell Jones and Walker Launches 2 Way Street Campaign

Russell Jones and Walker has launched its 2 Way Street campaign, to be headed by Gail Porter.

2010-08-11
LONDON, ENGLAND, August 11, 2010 (Press-News.org) Russell Jones and Walker, the personal injury specialists, has launched 2 Way Street, a campaign that aims to bring HGV drivers and cyclists together.

The campaign, fronted by Gail Porter, calls for HGV drivers to have cycle awareness training, for cyclists to be encouraged to take cycle training to cope with busy urban roads, and for more investment in the design of cycle-friendly roads. The campaign is supported by CTC, the UK's national cyclists' organisation.

On average, every year approximately eight cyclists a year are killed by lorries in London and about 28 are killed by lorries across the UK, with 70% of these in urban areas.

Following the launch of the Barclays Cycle Hire, in July this year, which aims to generate up to 40,000 extra cycle trips a day in central London by providing 5,000 cycles for hire, Paul Kitson, a claimant personal injury specialist with Russell Jones & Walker with particular expertise in cycling claims said: "The launch of Boris Johnson's Barclay Cycle Hire scheme in central London is even more of reason to draw attention to the relationship between cyclists and HGV drivers in urban areas, and call for positive change.

"All adult cyclists across the UK should have access to national standards cycle training, so that they have the confidence and skills to cycle safely on today's busy urban roads.

"The 2 Way Street survey has explored, for the first time ever, the relationship between cyclists and lorry drivers and most importantly we now have proof that both parties want more or less the same things so they can share happily the same roads."
