Bradley Stoke Way closed after accident on new crossing

Posted on Monday 15th October 2012 at 10:38 am by SH (Editor)

Police officers investigate the scene of an accident on Bradley Stoke Way.

The northbound carriageway of Bradley Stoke Way was closed this morning following an accident in the vicinity of a pedestrian crossing near the Willow Brook Centre.

The incident is said to have involved a cyclist and a car. Initial reports suggest that there were no serious injuries.

A police road block was in force at the Savages Wood Road Roundabout, preventing traffic from using the northbound exit onto Bradley Stoke Way.

The pedestrian crossing, which was installed only last month, was taped off while police officers investigated the scene.

Police were preparing to re-open the road when the above photo was taken at 10:10am.

UPDATE (12 noon): A Police spokesperson told The Journal:

“Police were called to Bradley Stoke Way just before 8:30am today, Monday 15th October, by the ambulance service.”

“A cyclist had come off his bike and been injured. The man was taken to Frenchay hospital with suspected head and chest injuries, which were not believed life-threatening. The road was reopened at 10:10am.”

    Its really sad to know about this after all work that was done to make it safer after the 2 previous incidents.

  2. SH (Editor) Says:

    Police are unable to confirm if anyone other than the cyclist was involved.

  3. SH (Editor) Says:

    Heard another report that cyclist skidded on grit.

  4. Bob Says:

    Awaiting cause of accident

    However, it is very evident that the road surface in the area is not up to standard (very gritty) and I’ve avoided riding my motorbike on that stretch of road for this reason.

  5. Sean Says:

    Really glad no one was seriously injured. Just a shame all that work and time and effort seems to have been for nought. Essentially it just comes down to road sense and education

    Isn’t it a shame that the police seem to be out in numbers for this minor incident judging by the photo yet have all but abandoned walking the beat in BS

  7. Bradley stoke resident Says:

    Well not out in quite so much force when a lady was mugged for her bag at top of Wheatfield drive this afternoon

  8. Happy Says:

    There has been more incidents at this spot since the new lights than when it had none there ?…

  9. Bradley stoke resident Says:

    Has there been more incidents since the lights, I haven’t been aware of any and I live close to it?

  10. Sally Says:

    agree with anon-e-mouse’ comment especially since there have been two muggings recently, invovling a hooded and masked low life with a knife. I don’t understand why this hasn’t made the main news on the Bradley Stoke Journal.

  11. Happy Says:

    Maybe they didn’t report them as they weren’t that serious just a scratch or bump

  12. SH (Editor) Says:

    Comments from ‘Bradley Stoke resident’ and ‘Sally’ were held in the moderation queue pending confirmation of the second (Wheatfield Road) mugging incident by police.
