London Road Safety Unit (LRSU) works alongside various departments at Transport for London (TfL). This includes those working in cycling, walking, bus priority, planning, road network management, marketing, press and communications. LRSU also works closely with the Greater London Authority (GLA) to ensure that the Unit's activities fit with Mayoral policies.
Transport for London
LRSU is an active member of the Pan London Road Safety Forum, working with London councils, London boroughs, the emergency services, GLA and other organisations to improve road safety in London.
LRSU organise an annual pan-London road safety conference for key stakeholders.
LRSU work closely with teams (for example road safety officers, engineering, transportation) in boroughs across London.
LRSU also work with stakeholders from a number of UK Government departments and European organisations in the areas of casualty reduction, policy and planning, campaigns, data and research.
Emergency services are widely involved in dealing with collisions and casualties on London's roads. The police are also responsible for collecting collision and casualty data and for key enforcement initiatives to address safety issues.
For this reason, they are valuable stakeholders for all teams within LRSU.
Road safety and user groups
Road safety organisations representing the interests and development of those working in road safety, and those affected by collisions on the road, are also key stakeholders of LRSU.
Working together increases national recognition for road safety issues, encourages training and development and provides support for those affected by collisions.
