Is it me or have there been more accidents on this 200m stretch of road since the roundabout was installed? Maybe they should spend another 5 to 8 million on removing it!! But, yes, like triplediamond.......bring on the ’lets blame the road’ brigade. Idiot drivers that’s all the problem is with regards to accidents. We need a new road for the volume of traffic - the idiotic drivers need handling appropriately as a separate issue.

Let’s hear it.....
