  • If you are not going to grit this junction then you need to provide alternative protection to prevent cars from ending up in the deep ditch.

    Perhaps it’s time to install a crash barrier.

    There have been many accidents over the years around this bend/junction. It’s not long ago that there was a near fatal accident when a car crashed into the ditch and caught fire. It was only the prompt intervention from a person in a passing vehicle who managed to drag the driver out, who suffered severe burns and other injuries, that saved his life.
