Councillor calls for action at Dyke junction
A county councillor hopes to be able to persuade Lincolnshire County Council to make alterations at a road junction in Dyke.
Coun Sue Woolley has approached Lincolnshire County Council’s highways department about making alterations at the junction on the A15 in Dyke.
Improvements could include better signs and speed restrictions. The speed limit on that section of the road is currently 60mph.
Coun Woolley is also discussing the matter with Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership, which works to reduce the number of deaths and injuries on the roads.
Coun Woolley said: “It is a nasty junction, because there is a slight dip. There is poor visibility and you can suddenly come across someone, particularly at night.
“I don’t think there is enough warning that the junction is there and the 60mph limit is too high.”
It follows an accident on Tuesday evening last week involving a blue Fiat Seicento and a blue Volkswagen Golf .
A man driving the Fiat was taken to Boston Pilgrim Hospital with minor chest injuries.
Coun Woolley added: “Too many accidents are happening at the spot for comfort.”
Coun Woolley has also asked Bourne Town Council to support her campaign.
The town council will discuss the situation at its highways and planning meeting on Tuesday, January 29. It will be held at 7.30pm at Bourne Town Hall.
