CATG Wellhead Drove
This junction is severely dangerous and a very real threat to any who use it. The speed of vehicles coming up the hill and approaching the junction is unacceptable especially as the speed limit is 30mph and the difficulty seeing out from Wellhead Drove onto such a busy road creates the very dangerous situation. This has been a recurring problem and once again the situation is causing concern to all road users both residents and visitors including pedestrians horse-riders and learner drivers.Many Wellhead Drove residents now advise their visitors to turn left onto the A350Chalford instead of turning right as it is too dangerous to do otherwise.I understand that two fatalities have occurred in recent years could this please be confirmedFurthermore the density of traffic appears to be increasing evidenced by the increasing difficulty of using the junction and it would be appreciated if a survey could be commissioned to establish the facts to enable a solution to be proposed. Please indicate as to whether this would be possible.Finally Wellhead Drove is frequently used by farm vehicles which leave mud on the road surface. This in turn ends up on the tyres of residents cars which weaken their grip and makes turning onto Chalford even more hazardous.I hope you are able to be of some assistance in this matter as it would be greatly appreciated by all.
