New safety signs have been introduced on the A4012 stretch between Leighton and Hockliffe in a bid to lower the number of accidents on the road.

Ten fatal or serious accidents have taken place on the five mile-long road between 2006 and 2010, prompting Central Bedfordshire Council to introduce new safety measures for drivers, reports the Leighton Buzzard Observer.

Devon is another area where measures have been taken in an effort to improve safety, with signs positioned on a number of roads, including the A382 Newton Abbot to Whiddon Down.

Speaking to the news provider, councillor Budge Wells said: "We put up additional chevron signs at some of the bends, replaced old signage with more visible yellow backed signs, added verge marker posts, laid some enhanced road studs and cut back roadside shrubs."

Mr Wells explained that the improvements appear to be working already, with just one serious injury recorded since the work was completed.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801475291-ADNFCR
