Councillors are calling for urgent action to make safe an accident blackspot on the A614 at Kirkburn.
Over recent months there has been a succession of accidents, some resulting in serious injuries to road users.
East Riding of Yorkshire ward councillor Felicity Temple sid: “The A614 through Kirkburn is rapidly becoming a serious accident blackspot. We have been working with both the Kirkburn Parish Council and the local landowner to see what can be done to try to improve the situation. Many of the accidents are going un-reported so are not really known about by the ERYC Highway Officers, but the locals certainly know about them and are frequently on scene helping those involved. Officers are telling us that one of the causes is diesel spillages on the road surface.”
