safety barriers in south gloucestershire need moving

01 May 2012

It has been claimed that safety barriers built in the middle of the A38 to protect people crossing the busy road in Alveston, South Gloucestershire have been deemed a “death trap” for cars and cyclists. The safety barriers built in concrete islands were constructed in November as a traffic barrier following a couple of incidents involving pedestrians. However, since the construction, there have been at least four car accidents at the junction. A council spokesman said: “Following feedback we received about the scheme, some minor modifications have been carried out to the central pedestrian island” “We will continue to monitor this junction.”
