THE A338 out of Bournemouth was closed for hours on Saturday night after a Land Rover and trailer carrying diesel crashed earlier.

The northbound carriageway was closed between Blackwater and Ashley Heath until late evening while recovery and repairs took place.

Initial reports suggested that a diesel tanker had overturned, but it later transpired that the Scottish and Southern Electric-branded Land Rover was towing a trailer with a diesel tank on it.

The accident left diesel spilt on the carriageway and the central barrier was badly damaged.

Police and the fire brigade were called at 5.55pm to the scene, about two miles south of Ashley Heath, on the northbound carriageway.

The road was completely shut for around 40 minutes, as the vehicle was blocking it and facing south.

One lane reopened at 6.40pm, police said, to allow stuck traffic to slowly pass the scene.

However, the road remained closed to other traffic for hours while the vehicle was recovered and repairs carried out.

Vehicles were diverted off at Blackwater Junction and alternative routes were congested earlier.

A police spokesman told the Daily Echo that there were no injuries and recovery was arranged.

"south of Blackwater Junction"

but your own Traffic Alert says " between B3073 (Blackwater Junction) and A31 Ringwood Road / Horton Road (Ashley Heath Interchange)."

I think that's North!

"Speeding will not be a factor"... if you don't mind me saying that is a rather stupid thing to say....Speeding is driving at a speed that puts yourself or others in danger... the speed limit is a MAXIMUM speed allowed by law on that road not the speed you should drive at.. if you have an unstable and badly loaded trailer and you roll it over at 50 mph I think that would be driving to fast for the conditions you find yourself in... that is speeding.

A single vehicle no injuries incident, perhaps overturned (but Echo picture does show it upright on it's remaining wheels), some diesel spillage and some damage to the off-road central barrier.

Without a doubt had this same situation occurred back in (say) 1994 that road, the diesel spill and the wreckage would have all been cleared inside an hour and the road speedily reopened. Go back any further in time and whilst there would have been delays, for as long as it took to shove the wreck out the way and put down some sand, it's doubtful the road would have been 'officially' closed at all .

So why these days in such circumstances was a major road like the A338 closed or so 'many hours'?

Perhaps it would have crossed onto the oncoming lane & wiped out some of the passing traffic. Then, maybe, those who thought there was no need to shut the road would be calling for 'something to be done'

Not sure why you're getting the thumbs down, overturning a Landie without damaging the roof load would've been a very clever trick.

Presumably the trailer starting snaking and pushed the Landie bonnet first into the Armco. - seen it happen right in front of me on the M3 with a small caravan + Volvo 960 combination, very scary to watch.

i doubt they do as i work for the company and we are monited on speed so i know they have limiters
So what are the land rovers limited to ?? 70mph ???

I bet you a £10 for charity that he was going to fast got a wobble on tryed braking which you shouldnt do if it wobbles and that's why the accident happened

"Speeding will not be a factor"... if you don't mind me saying that is a rather stupid thing to say....Speeding is driving at a speed that puts yourself or others in danger... the speed limit is a MAXIMUM speed allowed by law on that road not the speed you should drive at.. if you have an unstable and badly loaded trailer and you roll it over at 50 mph I think that would be driving to fast for the conditions you find yourself in... that is speeding.
Speeding is driving faster than the speed limit. Driving faster than is safe for your given equippage is driving without due care and attention.

Its probably closed as the crash barrier has been flatten - as usual as barrier seem to fail too quickly. The idea is they bend and keep the traffic on one side. Not just squash down.
If they don't squash, they'll shred the vehicle that collides with them! Something has to give, so the barrier deforms to absorb some of the energy of the impact. Clearly it did the job properly, as the vehicle didn't cross onto the opposite carriageway, and the driver appears to have escaped relatively unscathed.

you owe £10 to charity, the cause of this accident was a failure on the landrover, something snapped on the axle causing the vehicle to lose control so pay up or shut up
