Road lay­out is not marked clearly

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph - JES­SICA Whit­tle­sey

IN re­gards to the re­cent ac­ci­dent on the a47 near the Cas­tor slip road where a cy­clist was killed.

a few months back my­self and fa­ther for­tu­nately man­aged to stop a car trav­el­ling to­wards us down the slip road into on­com­ing traf­fic.

The lady and gen­tle­man didn’t re­alise they were driv­ing down a one way road and, thank­fully, we man­aged to stop them in time be­fore they reached the car­riage­way.

Luck­ily there were no other cars com­ing off the car­riage­way at this point.

Sadly this was not the case for the gen­tle­man cy­clist.

Some­thing must be done about this junc­tion! There are not enough No En­try signs when com­ing from Cas­tor and the road lay­out is not marked clearly enough show­ing how to get back on the a47 head­ing to­wards Stam­ford.

It’s time some­thing was done to help pre­vent sim­i­lar tragedies from hap­pen­ing.
