This junction is dangerous in normal circumstances. However it is currently the only way in and out of Milton Hill due to road closures the opposite end. Turning right out on to the A4130 is so dangerous. Please put out more cones and signs to slow the traffic or temporary lights as the works are due to continue for 6 weeks.
Thank you for your enquiry. This issue has been passed onto the relevant team for investigation.

The temporary traffic lights in response to the claims the junction is dangerous is an excessive measure. Whilst I appreciate efforts have been made quickly in response to safety concerns, the knock on effect of queuing traffic in all directions is not proportionate to the difficulty some drivers have of pulling out of Milton Hill. There are other methods which are less impactive to everybody else, such as a permanent reduction of the speed limit along the length of the road and/or clearance of foliage across the view of the junction of Milton Hill. Another aid to drivers pulling out would be a mirror as this would provide a better view.
