Bucks County Council To Investigate Reasons For A413 Collisions

Buckinghamshire County Council is to investigate why there's been so many collisions on the A413.

It's after a petition was released calling for a roundabout or traffic signals at the London Road Junction near the Chiltern Hospital.

This idea has been declined because of logistics - but the council say they are looking at alternatives.

The petition stated:

“There are 'near misses' on a daily basis in addition to the numerous accidents at this junction. Apparently the latest collision was on Monday 22nd March 2016.

"There are 3 schools in the immediate area. During peak pick up times there are a large number of children in vehicles which use this junction during the school run.

"It is a busy junction which requires drivers to turn across traffic travelling at speeds of 50mph, shortly after, increasing to national speed limit.

"There have previously been temporary traffic lights to facilitate roadworks at this junction, during this time it was infinitely safer.”
