Notorious Enderby junctions still high on County ‘most dangerous’ list

roundaboutLeicestershire County Council has recently released figures showing there were 179 accidents at a list of 10 sites in the County.

It comes as no surprise to residents in Enderby that local junctions are well represented on the list (see below).

The incidents were reported to have involved 253 casualties from January 2010 to the end of 2014.

The figures take into account all of the roads in the County for which the County Council has responsibility – which therefore excludes trunk roads and motorways.

The Narborough Road South roundabout junction with Fosse Park Avenue was listed as the most dangerous, with 31 accidents over the five years.

Second was the Narborough Road South junction at the roundabout with Soar Valley Way, where there were 21 accidents over five years.

Enderby’s Foxhunter roundabout, (recently the subject of traffic calming measures by junction widening and the erection of illuminated ‘give way’ signs) came in third.

The List:
