Back to all reports

Hinkley point C buses are parking on slip road entry/exits to/from Nethet Stowey off A39. This is a hazard for motorists entering or leaving the village. A slip road is not a bus psrk but a stretch of road where motorists can transition safely between areas with different speed limits. In this case, allowing cars to reduce speed from the A39 which is the national speed limit, and reduce doen to 30mph which is tje speed limit on entering the village. With hinkley buses parked on the slip roads cars are either forced to reduce their speed whilst on the A39, thus risking being hit from behind or impeding the progress of other motorist. Or they have to maintain their speed. try to use what little slip road is left after the bus, break sharply whilst negociating the corner enteting the village and risk crashing in the process. Both solutions are not ideal, but are forced upon people daily by the actions of hinkley bus drivers having little considetation for other road users
