Another crash at accident blackspot in Clacton
5:30pm Wednesday 19th September 2012 in News
A CONCERNED resident claims it is only a matter of time before someone is killed at an accident blackspot following another crash.
There has been a series of crashes at the junction between Ellis Road and West Avenue in Clacton.
In the latest incident at the spot, two cars smashed into each other at about 6pm on Monday.
No one was seriously hurt in the collision, but nearby residents say the road needs to be changed.
Brenda Grindrod, of Ellis Road said: “It is usually cars coming from West Avenue and not stopping as they go across Ellis Road.
“All of the residents around here are fed up of seeing cars crash into each there.
“One of these days I know somebody will be killed there. It is not an ‘if’ but a ‘when’.
“It is dangerous for pedestrians too because people pull out without stopping.”
Mrs Grindrod wants to see the ‘Give Way’ signs on West Avenue changed to ‘Stop’ signs, to encourage drivers to stop and look before entering the junction.
Essex County Council will visit the site, and encouraged residents to report any concerns they had about the safety of the road.
