15 May (Part 2) - Welling Corridor improvements claim another victim

AccidentOnly a month after the last one there has been another serious accident barely 100 yards away on the ‘improved’ Shooters Hill/Bellegrove Road this morning. It involved a motorcycle and the air ambulance attended.

What was it the (then) EU Committee Chairman on road safety told me in 2009? Oh, yes. If you make a road narrower or introduce obstacles without careful remodelling of the entire road all you do is rob drivers of the space in which to recover from an emergency; something like that anyway.

So here’s the result. Let’s hope it is not as bad as it looks. News Shopper report.
