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:

Leigh Taylor, of Whetstone, died at the scene of the crash on the B582 Desford Road, in Enderby, on Sunday evening.

Two cars, a Vauxhall Corsa and a Toyota Yaris, were involved in the collision at 7.05pm.

Mr Taylor was the front-seat passenger in the Corsa.

The Corsa’s driver was yesterday in University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire Hospital in a stable condition.

Police said the driver of the Yaris was in Leicester Royal Infirmary in a stable condition, while the passenger in the Yaris was at Glenfield hospital in a stable condition.

Following the crash, the road was closed at its junctions with the A47 and with Forest Road, to allow officers to carry out their investigations and deal with the incident, until 3.30am yesterday.

Detective Constable Seamus Burns, the investigating officer, said:

“The Corsa was travelling towards Desford from Enderby and the Yaris in the opposite direction at the time of the collision.

“We would like to appeal to anyone who may have witnessed the collision, or saw the vehicles beforehand, to please contact us as soon as possible.”
