Two people injured in crash near Kings Worthy pub

Hampshire Chronicle: The crash caused tailbacks on the A33 this evening. The crash caused tailbacks on the A33 this evening.

TWO people have suffered injuries after a collision between a car and a motorcycle in Kings Worthy.

The accident took place on London Road near to the Cart and Horses pub.

Police and paramedics attended the scene this evening and motorists experienced delays.

A police spokesman said two people - the rider of a black Kawasaki motorcycle and the driver of a silver Vauxhall Corsa - suffered "minor" injuries.

Cllr Jackie Porter is among those who have been calling for a safety review at the junction.

“We call again for slower through speeds and a safer way to turn right. Obviously we don't know the cause of this accident yet but it is very sad that another one has occurred in the same week that HCC has told our cross party group again that the junction isn't a priority,” she said.

I use this junction twice a day. I have seen potential accidents at this junction on many occasions. The biggest problem is caused by the central waiting area where cars are stationary waiting to turn left/right. This obstructs clear visibility for other cars and when vehicles are travelling at speed accidents happen. I am concerned about the length of time the resolution of this issue is taking. Does someone have to die before the junction is made safe?

So frustrating that it really doesn't need any major work or new signage, just a redrawing of the road markings with a bit of paint to erase those death trap waiting areas in the central reservation. What is taking so long?
