CALLS have been made for traffic-calming measures on a main road in Peppard following a two-car collision.
A Lexus RX400 rolled over twice in the crash with a Peugeot 306 at the crossroads in Stoke Row Road on Saturday. Police were called at 12.26pm and officers closed the road at its junctions with the B481.
Both drivers suffered minor injuries and were treated by an ambulance crew at the scene.
Elizabeth Stratton, who lives in Stoke Row Road, said the road was dangerous because some drivers failed to take care.
“The traffic speeds along this road,” she said. “We have to creep out of our drive. I would like it recognised that this is a dangerous road by something being put in place to slow drivers down.
“In an ideal world there would be a speed camera but that would be expensive. Even better would be a roundabout outside the Unicorn pub — that would solve the problem.”
In last year’s Peppard community plan survey, 61 per cent of respondents said they were concerned about traffic and 54 per cent supported a 20mph speed limit on all residential side roads. Sixty-seven people said they would be interested in being part of a neighbourhood speedwatch team.
lTwo accidents occured on the A4130 between Remenham and Hurley less than 24 hours apart this week.
On Monday evening, a red Mazda RX-8 and a Peugeot 206 were involved in a collision and the road was closed for more than two hours by police. A woman was taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading with a suspected neck injury.
On Tuesday, a lorry jack-knifed at almost exactly the same location.
