Bournemouth Echo: Major Bournemouth road closed after three-vehicle crash Major Bournemouth road closed after three-vehicle crash

CASTLE Lane East was temporarily closed this morning following a three-vehicle crash.

The collision was reported to police shortly after 10am this morning, and the westbound lane between the Holdenhurst Avenue junction and Cooper Dean Roundabout was closed.

However, no serious injuries are believed to have been sustained.

A grey Citroen Saxo and a blue Ford Focus - both registered to local keepers - and a green Renault Scenic, registered to a keeper who lives outside of Dorset, were involved in the collision.

A Dorset Police spokesperson said: "This was reported to us at around 10.05am.

"The road has been closed to allow recovery of the vehicles to take place. We believe that slight injuries only have been sustained."

At 11.30am, the road had been reopened.

It's that bloody road system 4 into 3 into how many? People start at the lights with 4 or 5 lanes then it's a race to get into the next lane before it finishes, then you have a stupid bus/ taxi lane where you have to be very careful what is coming up on your left and what is going to cut you up when someone is in the wrong lane. Who ever thought up that system needs to be stood in the middle of that road and see how many people can hit him. It has to be one of the worst lane designs ever. No wonder they have accidents.

I agree. I regularly from Iford to the Cooper Dean and you can guarantee someone will cut in front of you at some point. Usually they're in the inside lane when they want to go up the Wessex Way. Either that or they change lanes on the roundabout itself. Crazy road.
If we drivers can see it why can't the planners?

Nothing to do with the planners both comments include the problem driving in the wrong lane in yours and Townee thinks it's a race blame the road users not someone or something else
