Highways Agency waiting 12 months before A120 action
The Highways Agency said they are waiting to do a 12 month review before any changes are implemented on the A120.
The roads authority finished improvements to the Hare Green junction in April, which was supposed to reduce accident numbers.
But many drivers say reducing the road from a dual carriageway to single is confusing and the crossing dangerous.
Two women had to be cut from their cars last Friday, February 1 after two separate accidents on the A120. The first was at Hare Green between two cars. In the second, a lorry and car collided just before the police road block.
A Highways Agency spokesperson said: "We are aware of the incidents on the A120 on Friday, February 1 and our thoughts are with those involved. Due to the ongoing police investigation it would not be appropriate for us to comment on these particular cases or speculate on the cause of the incidents.
"Safety remains our top priority and we continue to monitor safety along the A120, as we do on all our roads. We participate in any relevant investigations following incidents and any data that suggests a change to the road layout would deliver safety benefits is carefully considered.
"A safety audit of the improvements completed at this junction last April is due to be carried out in April this year. This will assess how well the junction is working and if any further measures will be required."
