Regular readers will be aware of the poor road safety record associated with the crossroads of Stanbridge Road with Woodways and Lower Road — i.e., at Clay Cross.
Most recently a collision at that location resulted in a motor cyclist sustaining serious leg injuries, following a collision with a small hatchback motorcar. The car had right of way, travelling into the village from the Aylesbury direction, while the motorcycle was travelling Southbound on Standbridge Road — see here
Efforts to encourage Bucks County Council to improve the road layout, or at least the signage, to make the East-West right of way much clearer have so far produced no results. There response seems to be that the relative concerns do not justify the expense, and that signage is adequate as things stand.
One Haddenham parish councillor, David Lyons, is not happy with this response, and has initiated a petition, to garner support from Haddenham residents.
He states: "I have started the petition
"Buckinghamshire County Council (Transport for Bucks): Make Haddenham Clay Cross Junction Safe!"
and my goal is to reach 100 signatures and I need as much local support as possible."
