A WOMAN has called for traffic calming measures on a Henley road following an accident.

A WOMAN has called for traffic calming measures on a Henley road following an accident.

A motorcyclist careered off the road and crashed through the hedge outside Pamela Stuart’s property in Baronsmead by the junction with King’s Road.

Mrs Stuart, 81, said a neighbour had witnessed the crash and it was the fourth to happen during her time living there.

Mrs Stuart said: “Anyone walking along wouldn’t have stood a chance.

“The camber is bad. Anybody coming round here much too fast is going to have an accident. Someone will be knocked over, I’m sure.

“We have made representation to the town council about this and the way traffic comes round here. You hear screeches of brakes all the time.

“With the new hospital opening there’s going to be a lot more traffic coming past.”

She has asked for signs telling drivers to slow down and a pedestrian crossing.

Mrs Stuart said she was tired of her hedge being damaged repeatedly. “I’m tempted to pull the whole lot up and concrete it over because I’m fed up with it,” she said. “It takes a lot of money and time to maintain.”

Thames Valley Police confirmed that an accident in Baronsmead involving a Honda motorcycle between 11pm and 11.30pm on Thursday last week had been reported to them the following day.
