The Parish Council has been concerned over a number of years about the accident record at Eldon crossroads and has met with both the County Council and the police on a number of occasions to express its fears about further accidents at the junction.
Sadly, early in 2015 a young man was killed at the crossroads and more recently there has been a further serious accident when another young man lost his leg.
The Parish Council and County Councillors met with officers from the County Council and the police following the fatality in January and the County Council has promised a road scheme to attempt to improve safety at the junction. This is programmed for August 2015. Part of the scheme will involve a radar controlled speed warning sign on Eldon Bank as traffic speeding down the bank has been a factor in some of the accidents at the junction.
