If you want to find the friendliest people in Britain, Bolton is the place to go. At least, that’s according to a survey carried out by the British Association for the Advancement of Science. This accolade was given to the residents of this Greater Manchester town several years ago, and many of them will tell you it is still the best place in the UK to live.
Situated just 10 miles from Manchester city, the city is a stone’s throw from the beautiful West Pennine Moors. There are many historical buildings in the town, some of them dating back to the 14th and 15th centuries, with approximately 700 listed buildings in the area, many in the town centre itself.
With many parks, cinemas, theatres, and family attractions, not to mention numerous festivals and events throughout the year, it’s no surprise that tourism in Bolton is booming. 6.5 million people visit Bolton every year, massively inflating the town’s resident population of 130,000 or so and adding to the crowds on both the roads and pedestrian areas.
In such a busy, bustling location, it is little surprise that occasionally accidents happen. Whether it’s a crash on the road, a slip or fall in a public place or an unexpected accident at work, Accident Advice Helpline is here for you.

Road traffic accidents in Bolton
Second only to Manchester City, Bolton has some of the most dangerous roads in the Greater Manchester area. The A675 Belmont Road has seen numerous fatal and serious accidents over the years, and the busy A6 and A66 in the town, as well as the M60 and M61, are frequently sites of accidents of all severities. Over the course of a year, Bolton had 523 road traffic accident casualties, out of which there were four deaths and 77 serious injuries.
Part of the problem in Bolton is the sheer volume of traffic. Two of the most congested places in Greater Manchester are in Bolton. Both on the M61, they are junction three at Kearsley and junction two at Walkden, which see regular users snarled up in traffic jams for around 72 hours a year. Such delays can cause frustration and can incite poor judgement, leading to accidents during the rush hour.
