New road safety campaign launched in Chippenham

20th August 2010 | Warning Signs

A major new road safety campaign has been launched in Chippenham following the funeral of an A350 road crash victim.

Ardent safety campaigner Bill Douglas, from Wiltshire Council's Chippenham Area Board, said that the gaps in the road's central reservation should be closed to ensure no further accidents occur.

Speaking to the Chippenham Gazette & Herald, Mr Douglas, who takes special responsibility for road safety in the region, said: "The fatal accident highlights the dangers that every motorist using that stretch of road knows exist.

"There are ten openings in the central reservation and these are potential death traps for the unwary; inviting and allowing motorists to use them to u-turn onto the opposite carriageway."

The openings were originally intended for use by farmers.

Mr Douglas added that farm access warning signs at either end of the road may not be sufficient to reduce the number of fatal accidents on the A350.

Recently, the British Transport Police warned the public that they ignore warning signs on the country's rail network at their own peril.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800034039-ADNFCR
