PROPOSED JUNCTION ALTERATION – BAILEYFIELD ROAD AT SIR HARRY LAUDER ROAD
The junction of Baileyfield Road and Sir Harry Lauder Road has been highlighted as a site which gives cause for concern. Over the latest three-year period of held data (up to the end of September 2017) there have been four collisions, all involving vehicle shunts whilst exiting the junction. These collisions involved the lead vehicle starting to move forward then stopping while the following vehicle moving forward and striking the rear of the first.
It is proposed to introduce a STOP line and sign in place of the current GIVE WAY at this junction. The intention is to slow down the decision-making process at the junction and ensure that each vehicle physically stops at the junction. I have attached a plan showing the details of this change. Please reply via the enclosed reply slip and freepost envelope.
