Drakes roundabout safety scheme
Works to improve road safety at Drakes roundabout are now complete.
The scheme sought to:
- improve advance information for drivers
- reduce vehicle speeds on the approach to the junction
- improve road markings through the junction
This scheme was highlighted as a result of the 2018 Annual Safety Review that identified a cluster of injury collisions at the junction. Details of those collisions, and the casualties involved, informed the design of the scheme delivered.
The impact of the changes on road safety will be monitored and will inform future road safety schemes.
