Sacking call after danger junction crashes

First published in News by

ROAD campaigners have called for a transport decision maker to be sacked following two accidents in a week at a notorious danger junction.

A man in his 50s was trapped in his Ford Mondeo with pelvis and lung injuries after an accident on the A120 junction at Hare Green on Thursday, February 14.

On Tuesday, February 19, a lorry and three cars were believed to be involved in a smash between Pellens Corner and the A133. Three women had minor injuries.

The accident comes two weeks after a woman had to be cut from her car at the junction when two cars collided on February 1.

Fred Nicholls Tendring councillor for Great Bromley, said: “This is beyond a joke. This is a very serious matter. I ask that the Highways Agency asset manager be sacked.

“The Highways Agency is completely responsible for this accident. I feel very strongly and I won’t stop campaigning about it.

“It is the same circumstances as the accident two weeks ago.

“We want to speak to the roads minister Stephen Hammond and David Cameron. We need immediate action.”

The Highways Agency is bringing a safety audit forward to assess the junction and will file findings before March 8.

When was the last time anybody saw a police patrol car on this road apart from when attending to the many accidents?
