Hillingdon is an area within the London Borough of Hillingdon, and it has a long history as it is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. Its name means “hill of a man named Hille.” However, Hillingdon is now a built-up area and accidents on the A40 in the borough are frequent. A pedestrian died in a collision with a car on 10th October 2014 on an A40 slip road near Hillingdon Circus.
In July there were two crashes on the A40 near Hillingdon, one involving two lorries, and another (not on the same day) involving cars. The road was closed for some hours on both occasions, and also in July the same stretch of road was closed due to flash flooding. The road was also closed in September 2014 when a teenager on a foot bridge over the A40 was threatening to jump. Drivers, it seems could be unlucky when travelling on that particular road in Hillingdon.
