UPDATE: Hundreds stuck on A338 after accident

Bournemouth Echo: Traffic back to Cooper Dean roundabout after earlier crash on Spur Road Traffic back to Cooper Dean roundabout after earlier crash on Spur Road

A CRASH on the Spur Road is causing delays for motorists this morning.

The collision, involving three cars and a motorbike on the northbound carriageway, took place at just after 8am near Ashley Heath roundabout.

Traffic is at a standstill and queuing for several miles. Northbound is believed to still be completely blocked.

Police and ambulance are on the scene.

Lane one is now open but lane two remains closed due to debris on the carriageway.

The road was shut for a short time from Blackwater junction, a spokesperson for Dorset Police said.

The vehicles include a blue Volkswagon Scirocco, a silver Renault Clio, a black Suzuki motorcycle and a blue Audi A3.

Recovery is needed for the Audi.

There are currently no details on any injuries, Dorset Police said.

All down to someone driving beyond their limited capability, no doubt.
In accidents such as this everyone involved should be retested to make sure they are up to scratch before being let back on the roads.

Maybe they're just stuck in traffic. If the vehicles in front of them are going slow, what would you expect them to do?

As I passed the scene southbound on the A338, the traffic slowed, and naturally I looked to see what the problem might be. I don't think anyone should be punished for paying attention to the situation on the road.

This road is a single point of failure. It's the only real way into or out of Bournemouth. Accidents will always happen, but you need back up when they do. WE need someone to get a grip of the transport network around here. Like I always say : B, P and C are together a big city, with the transport infrastructure of small rural towns. Real money, on real, strategic improvements, not adding a few unwanted cycle paths. No one has the guts to do anything about it. Transport is strangling developement.

How about spending some of the three towns money on large signs to quickly close the blocked section of the spur rd when these things happen? I'm sure that hundreds, perhaps thousands of motorists entered the blocked section after it was clear the road was blocked. The lack of matrix style road sign is especially annoying when these signs have been installed in other locations where they seem to be far less useful.

Like I said, traffic on my side of the road was slowing because there were flashing blue lights in the distance. I couldn't tell what side of the road they were on at the time, the same as most others on the soundbound I expect. I really don't think people would have slowed that much just to have a morbid stare at the accident.

Seriously guys, if Foxes were dispatching in excess of thirty thousand of us each year and maiming triple that we'd not only hear about it constantly, we'd want something done about it too..

It's quite surprising the number of major incidents on this road. It's quite a short stretch and yet seems to have a high number of incidents. A common theme appears to be the short entry and exit lanes. Another is the high speeds people appear to drive.

I do wonder if there is a case to reducing the speed limit from the current 70. Even a reduction to 60 might help. At quiet times it wouldn't make much difference to time taken to drive the road. It might also reduce the top speeds people travel at to 70-75 rather than 90.

Better still a simple two tier limit, with perhaps 50 at busy times of the day, 70 otherwise.

The short exit and entry slip roads might also be a good way to help safety. Extending them would assist drivers and the cost shouldn't be prohibitive.

50mph on 7 mile stretch of dual carriage way with no junctions!?!!! You're right in the most of the accidents do happen near the junctions where cars are going well below the current speed limit. Such was the case today when a car driver approaching the Ashley Heath roundabout suddenly changed lane without checking all was clear. Unfortunately it wasn't clear and the motorcyclist who was in the other lane coming up to the roundabout came off worst.

Actually there is rarely the suggestion there was speeding (well not from people who actually know).
