Concerns raised over safety of traffic islands on Brook Way

Posted on Thursday 25th February 2016 at 6:27 pm by SH (Editor)

A vehicle lies on its side on Brook Way, Bradley Stoke, after apparently striking a traffic island that separates a cycle lane from the main carriageway, in the vicinity of a speed cushion an informal pedestrian crossing.

Further concerns have been raised over the safety of a series of traffic islands on Brook Way, Bradley Stoke following a second incident in which a vehicle flipped over after apparently striking the kerb of one of the islands.

The latest incident, which happened near the junction with The Common East, occurred at around 6.30pm on Saturday 23rd January and involved a silver Vauxhall Zafira which, according to police, hit a bollard and flipped onto its side.

A police spokesperson added: “The male driver suffered a cut hand and shock, but wasn’t seriously hurt. He was treated by an ambulance crew. There were no offences committed. The car had to be towed away and the road was clear by 8.15pm.”

Overturned car on Brook Way, Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

The incident appears to be remarkably similar to one that occurred further down Brook Way on 1st October last year, in which a red VW Polo flipped over near the junction with Merryweather Close.

The driver of that vehicle also escaped serious injury and police similarly concluded that no offences had been committed.

In both incidents, the vehicle appears to have been launched into the air after striking the front ‘nose’ of a narrow traffic island that separates the main carriageway from an on-road cycle lane in the vicinity of a speed cushion and informal pedestrian crossing.

Early morning collision on Savages Wood Road

Posted on Thursday 13th March 2014 at 8:03 pm by SH (Editor)

Road traffic collision on Savages Wood Road, Bradley Stoke.

The police and ambulance services attended a road traffic collision in Savages Wood Road early this morning, after a vehicle travelling eastbound ploughed into a van parked in front of the Hornbeam Close flats.

The incident (pictured above), which involved a green Vauxhall Corsa and a white Vauxhall van, occurred at around 6.40am, in foggy conditions.

The owner of the van, who was in his flat when he heard a “loud bang”, said the incident was attended by one police vehicle and an ambulance. He told The Journal that his van had been shunted about 4m down the road as a result of the collision.

Bus operator First reported on its Facebook page at 7.52am:

“There has been a serious accident on Savages Road, Bradley Stoke causing delays on the 73. At the moment we can pass in heavy traffic, however road may be closed soon.”

The driver of the Corsa was taken to hospital complaining of chest pains and the accident scene was cleared just before 8am.

Editor’s note: Readers of The Journal have previously complained of cars parked on Savages Wood Road making it difficult for traffic to simultaneously flow in both directions along this section of the road. Residents of (and visitors to) properties in Hornbeam Close say they are forced to park on Savages Wood Road because of inadequate off-road parking provision at the flats.
