Svitlana Tereschenko and Venera Minakhmetova Svitlana Tereschenko

Erection date: 11/11/2011

Site: Svitlana Tereschenko and Venera Minakhmetova (2 memorials)

E3, Bow Flyover Roundabout

Svitlana Tereschenko was killed when hit by a left-turning tipper lorry.  Only a few weeks after this horrible death Brian Dorling died in the same way on the other side of the same roundabout.  Almost exactly 2 years later Venera Minakhmetova was killed at exactly the same spot as Svitlana, in the same awful way. 

Meanwhile The Guardian reports the Mayor of London saying "...people make decisions on the road that are very risky – jumping red lights, moving across fast-moving traffic in a way that is completely unexpected and without looking to see what traffic is doing....".    None of the many cyclist deaths on the roads over the last few years have been attributed to this type of behaviour.  Most of them have been caused by cyclists having to share the road with lorrys, driven by people who cannot see the vulnerable people on the road.  The Mayor seems keener to maintain his popularity than saving innocent people's lives.
