This is a cross road of two fast straight country lane with an un-sighted blind cross-road from the S to N direction due to rolling hills. Serious accidents are very frequent when people cross the cross road at high speed by accident as they dont see it. There are a few poor "give way" signs and very worn old road markings from both the S and N approaches. It is extremely hard to see there is a cross road from these directions. A life-changing paralysis accident occurred here last year and at least 2 high speed crashes in Jan18. The signage is terrible and a negligent risk to life. This junction needs much better signage, road markings and speed rumble marks on approach.

Extremely urgent action is required.

Updates

  • I got an email from the council saying they were aware. This junction is still "LETHALLY" dangerous. Multiple life changing accidents have occurred there in the past few months.

    Signage of the blind cross roads is still totally inadequate.

  • No change to "fatally" dangerous lack of adequate road signs at this un-sighted, high speed cross roads as of 28.3.18. Landowners have fixed one of the two fences smashed by 1 of the 2 recent high speed accidents this week.

  • Very slow for a very high risk junction. New signage is much better but still below necessary coming from the west.
