Safety signs to be introduced at Holy Island causeway

Safety signage is to be fitted at both ends of a tidal causeway in Northumberland in a bid to reduce the number of stranded motorists in the area.

The decision to install the notices comes after a two-week trial during the Easter period, with the signs aiming to alert drivers to the hazards of the tides and urge them to check timetables.

The Holy Island Causeway working group, which included officers from the county council and Northumbria Police, was formed in November to discuss options for the area.

Councillor Pat Scott, who chaired the working group, said: "There will always be those few people who will decide to try and drive across the causeway outside of those safe times, but we hope that these signs, together with the other measures we have put in place, will make people think twice."

It is advisable for motorists to check tide timetables before driving near any riverbanks, particularly when there is torrential rainfall.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801406785-ADNFCR
