A YOUNG cyclist injured last week in a road where a Lidl supermarket is proposed, provides more evidence the store should not be built says one of its opponents.
The cyclist was rushed to hospital after an accident in Cowley Road, Uxbridge at 6.10pm on Wednesday, in which he collided with a silver Volvo.
The accident occurred at near to the old Peugeot car dealership, where Lidl want to build.
Police the child's injuries were not life threatening, and said they believed him to be around 13-year-old. Several roads were closed off as a result during rush hour, causing large diversions for drivers on the busy route.
Mic Singh, who runs G & T News, in Cowley Road, said: "It happened right by where Lidl want to build, on the most dangerous part of the road. It is the second accident there this month, I can't understand why they want to built there, and this is surely more evidence that they should not. Traffic is already so busy and dangerous and it would only make it worse for everybody."
