Cyclist fighting for life after collision in Catford

Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision which has resulted in a cyclist suffering life-threatening injuries.

The collision took place on Tuesday, 21 July shortly after 5pm on Stanstead Road at the junction with Catford Road.

The collision involved a lorry and a cyclist. The male cyclist, aged 54, remains in a critical condition in a London hospital.

The driver of the HGV is helping police with their enquiries. There have been no arrests.

Labour’s Cllr Alan Hall raised the issue of a cycle route between Forest Hill and Catford but was told in February it would cost £1m to make the necessary road improvements and Lewisham council did not have the budget for it at the moment.

Any witnesses, or those with dash cam footage, are asked to call 0208 285 1574, or 101 referencing CAD 5843/21JUL20.
