Improvements will be made to three notoriously dangerous junctions on the A120 near Horsley Cross, the Highways Agency has confirmed. The measures announced include the introduction of a reduced 50mph speed limit in the short term, pending construction of a roundabout to serve both junctions.
Bernard said, "I am delighted that the Minister for Roads has finally taken a decision about this notorious section of road. This is a huge victory for local campaigners who have been determined and consistent throughout. The people in my thoughts are those who live right next to the accident black-spots and who have so often been first on the scene. The closure of the gaps was never going to be a practical option”.
“The Highways Agency must now consider where the best location is for a roundabout and I am asking for local people to be consulted before a decision is made. I will not let up until we know that the roundabout has been given final approval and is under construction.
