There was a fatal accident on East End Road in East Finchley on Wednesday 22nd May 2019 resulting in the death of a child outside the Five Bells pub. What funding is available to have a thorough review of road safety in the area, and what funding is available to make any suggested improvements?

I was deeply saddened to hear of the tragic death of Sonny Parmar in May, and my thoughts are with his family and friends during this extremely difficult time. Barnet Council, the local highway authority, is undertaking an urgent assessment to identify if any changes can be made to reduce road danger on the East End Road. Transport for London (TfL) has contacted the council to offer its support and will assist this review in any way it can.

Through my transport strategy, I am committed to a Vision Zero approach to eliminate deaths and serious injuries from London roads. We have ensured that funding allocated by TfL to all London Boroughs through their Local Implementation Plans (including Barnet) is earmarked to deliver this strategy.
