Plea for signs on road bend

A COUNCILLOR has called for warning signs to be put on a bend in a road

A COUNCILLOR has called for warning signs to be put on a bend in a road in Crazies Hill after his wife’s car was written off in an accident.

Philip Davies was driving the car on the Crazies Hill Road when he was in collision with another vehicle driven by a 22-year-old man last week.

The road has a 60mph speed limit but Cllr Davies said he took the bend at around 15mph.

Speaking at a meeting of Wargrave Parish Council on Monday, said he was surprised more people hadn’t been involved in accidents on the road.

Cllr Davies, who lives in Cockpole Green, said: “There have been a number of close calls on that bend over the years.



“Is it sensible to have some sort of slowing signs and can we propose that to the borough council?

“I’m not sure how much of an effect it would have because people tend to be sensible when they know the road.”

Councillor Marion Pope added: “It is extremely dangerous there.”

Parish clerk Stephen Hedges said he would ask Wokingham Borough Council to investigate.
