A BUSY road junction which has seen 11 accidents over the past five and half years – three of them serious – is to have traffic lights installed.
The junction of the A614 with the B6034, north of Rufford Abbey – commonly known as the Rose Cottage junction – was identified as a problem site by Notts County Council’s accident investigation unit in 2008.
In addition to the high rate of accidents at the junction, traffic attempting to join the A614 from the B6034 side road also suffers substantial delays.
The works, costing £300,000, are expected to begin at the junction on Tuesday 16th October and are scheduled to be completed by mid-February.
It will be necessary to close the B6034 for the duration of the works but access will be maintained to Center Parcs and the residential properties on the B road.
