  • Wednesday 24th July. Accident at this junction, caused by not being able to see clearly. If you have reported this to "your contractor" as you say you did then "your contractor" should feel wholly responsible for not actioning your request sooner :-(

  • Still difficult vision for seeing traffic coming from the left as trying to come out of junction.

  • Thank you for your report. I have inspected the area again this morning and found no obstruction caused by overhanging vegetation to the public highway. I have passed this report to our traffic department to look at the speed of road users.

  • If you are in a car and look to your left you do not see cars coming until the very last minute its not to do with over hanging just head is too high to see past and people coming down from Jewells hill can't see the junction or can those coming out the junction see cars coming from Jewells hill.

    To be honest its better off having a speed bump there.

  • Thank you for your comments, however, I can only enforce when something is obstructing the highway its self as in overhanging. I will await for the traffic department to continue their investigation.

  • The blind spot itself has still been despite the sides being cut either side of the junction - see photo attached which shows the bus that sticks out and you can't see who is coming around the bend.
