A628 Road Watch

On this page you will find details of accident and road closures that occur on the A628. If you are aware of any such event that is not listed here, please e-mail us with details of the event, the date, and the location so that we can keep this list as up-to-date and accurate as possible.

The incidents shown on the map are also listed on the table below.

Note: The majority of accidents that occur along this route are outside the proposed bypass area. Given that Highway's Agency themselves concede that the bypass will attract more traffic onto this route, how can the pro-bypass lobby argue their case for improving safety for drivers and residents?
