    Accident blackspot views sought

    By David Brown on August 23, 2013

    Road users have been invited to give their views on a safety scheme planned for a town centre road accident ‘blackspot’.

    North Lincolnshire Council wants to improve safety in Frodingham Road, Scunthorpe, where there have been 41 accidents resulting in injury and one fatality in the past five years.

    Pedestrian accidents

    Harold Kilmore, 86, from the town, died in hospital in November 2011 days after his car was in collision with a police van, while 18 pedestrians have been hurt – including an 11-year-old boy who was struck by a car on a pedestrian crossing.

    The improvement plans include the creation of three raised “table-top” crossings near the Roman Catholic church, a new zebra crossing, an extension of the 20mph zone and the installation of a mini-roundabout.

    Make a difference

    North Lincolnshire councillor Nigel Sherwood, cabinet member for highways and neighbourhoods, said: “We were approached by local residents around the Frodingham Road area regarding road safety and asked if the council would improve the pedestrian crossing points along the road.

    “After listening to their concerns we produced a safety scheme plan for Frodingham Road. We are currently consulting with local residents and businesses on the proposals to get their views.

    “It’s important that local people have their say to ensure that the scheme will make a difference. If you would like to share your views, don’t hesitate to contact us.”

    It is not yet known how much the improvements would cost but they would not need planning permission.

    Temporary traffic lights would be used and there would be some overnight road closures while the work was carried out, the council said.
