Safety officials being urged to take action in West Sussex

Road safety officials have been advised to take action on a dangerous stretch of road located near Fernhurst, according to West Sussex Today.

The Cooksbridge corner in the south of the village saw another accident on New Year’s Day, and has now become a major worry for local residents. Even with the issue being raised to West Sussex County Council a year ago, nothing has been done so far.

Past accidents have included a horse and rider nearly being hit by a lorry, a van driving into the river and a load of bottles broken across the road.

A chevron sign had previously been put in place to note that three chevrons over a space of 50 yards should be between vehicles, but it has since been damaged.

Before the 50mph sign had been installed, drivers would have to judge their own speed just before the corner, but even now, there have been four vehicles crashing into the wall of Cooksbridge House. With the 50mph sign being followed by ‘slow’ signs, many drivers have been left confused.

The council has already removed one of the 50mph repeater signs but campaigners argue that this has had little effect. They claim that extending the 40mph limit beyond the corner will reduce risks greatly.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801531639-ADNFCR
