PART of the Wessex Way was closed this morning after a crash.

Dorset Police were called to a two-vehicle collision on the westbound carriageway of the Wessex Way between Cambridge Road roundabout and County Gates.

A force spokesperson say the crash was initially reported as non-injury.

The road was closed to allow for recovery.

There were delays past Richmond Hill roundabout as a result as well as through Westbourne, the diversion route.

The road reopened around 11.45am.

But... I thought the ever decreasing speed limits were supposed to stop this?

Oh yes, lowering the speed limits will resolve it all, didn't you know this!

Upping driving standards won't do anything... nope, just low speed limits.

This must be the most accident prone stretch of road in Bournemouth. Cars travelling too fast and too close and then having to suddenly slow for the traffic stopped at the traffic lights around blind bend, resulting in rear end shunts. I've lost count of the number I have seen.

They seem very happy to put traffic or pedestrian lights right next to a roundabout! Speed up to leave the roundabout then...stop for traffic lights.

It gives the cyclists a chance to undertake while you're waiting for the light to go green again.

i simply do not remember the constant almost daily accidents on this stretch of road before they changed the speed limit so obviously that is the problem as they have changed nothing else!
