Protest March after Cyclist Killed in Ealing

On Thursday 19 October a female cyclist died of her injuries after being hit with a vehicle on the Uxbridge Road, near the junction with Northfields Avenue. In the last five years, two pedestrians and another cyclist have been killed on the Uxbridge Road in Ealing. In the same time over 300 people have been injured, 46 of them seriously. Campaign groups have called for significant improvements to the road for years, but more needs to be done.

On Saturday 28 October we will say enough is enough.

We will march along the Uxbridge Road to call on Transport for London and Ealing Council to take action to make the road safe for all. We will call on them to review the many dangerous junctions, and to create safe spaces for vulnerable road users. But we need your support. We need you to march with us. We need you to say that you don't want anyone else seriously injured injured on this road.
The march will start outside Ealing Town Hall at 10.30am on Saturday 28 October. Please aim to arrive for 10am. Protestors will march from the Town Hall to the Lido Junction near Dean Gardens on the Uxbridge Road. We want to encourage families with young children, wheelchair users, pedestrians, runners and cyclists to take part. After brief speeches, the event will finish at about 11.30am.
