A female cyclist was taken to hospital with leg injuries after being hit by the driver of a Boots the chemist lorry at 08:36 on Friday 7th December.

The cyclist’s leg injuries are not thought to be life-threatening. She was air-lifted to hospital by the London Air Ambulance.

No arrests have been made and the police are continuing to investigate the collision.

In March 2011 cyclist David Poblet was killed at the same location.

The junction is due to be remodelled as part of Cycle Superhighway CS4 which will link Woolwich with London Bridge. In July Transport for London listed the intersection on its table of the top 100 junctions to be assessed for cycle safety improvements.
