Damaged safety barrier on corner of Bridge and New Street following traffic crash

Sent to Warwick District Council and Warwickshire County Council 2 minutes later

Esterday, 24th October, a truck crashed into the barrier on the corner of Bridge Street and New Street (CV8 1BP) by the traffic light junction. Located outside Abbotsford House and opposite the post office and hair dressers, the barrier provides protection from the busy junction. It should be replaced as soon as possible as it is heavily damaged.

This junction is very busy especially considering the narrow streets and the high level of foot traffic. Thoughts should be given to diverting traffic away from Old Kenilworth centre as there are HGVs and many buses going through this tight junction.

  • Hi, the last update was in November 2018 when I was told repairs had been ordered. 4 months have passed, but the safety barrier is still damaged as hasn't been repaired. Can you please provide an update? Thanks
