The mirror at the junction of Oxfordshire Way and Laughton Hill has finally been upgraded. This work was carried out by SAFER team on 10th & 11th November.
Over the years there have been a number of incidents at this junction. The latest major incident was a collision between a car and a cyclist in August which fortunately was not fatal.
This resulted in discussions with the immediate neighbours, Richard & Helen and Andy & Sarah, who agreed to the replacement mirror for the benefit of pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. Our thanks go to them.
The new mirror is the same height as the old but is oblong and provides twice the distance of vision, as well as being ‘uncorroded’. Whilst not a guarantee of ’no accidents’ it is hoped that the clearly visible mirror and improvement in vision will help.
