  1. Both occupants escaped uninjured from the accident which happened at the traffic lights where the A51, Elwood Way and Peter de Stapleigh Way meet.

  2. Just how does a car end up on a roof? Got to be speed involved

  3. Mike Edwards says:

    No filter on the lights if you are turning right from brine leas way, heading towards bridgemere. I’ve nearly had accidents there through no fault of my own. Definitely needs a filter to turn right, and also, needs some sort of signage, either at the side of the road or more prominent arrows on the road, coming from cheerbrook side, as I’ve had no end of vehicles blocking the left hand lane, presuming that is the lane for straight on, when it’s left only, meaning from cheerbrook to bridgemere, there’s a filter on green, but no one can get through as people get in the wrong lane! Whoever designed the whole crossroads needs sacking.

  4. Should look at replacing those lights with a roundabout

    • no room for a roundabout, 80% is stupid drivers and 20% is a need for improvement, the vision line is poor and timing is out

  5. Absolutely agree. Coming out of London Rd , from one side to the other, facing Bridgemere there is no time to get your car over , let alone a cyclist. Turning right in to that same end ( closed end ) is a lottery as there is NO safe time knitted in the lights and any chancers from Pter Dspleigh Way ( and there are many ) risk your Life. Seriously negligent lights

  6. They need build the prees to nantwich bypass to take the traffic away from stapley/brinelees school/Whitchurch road. With more houses being built the accidents are increasing, the roads are not designed for that much traffic.

  7. continuing problems with these lights should be addressed, no end of cars go through on amber and red, and certainly not fit for purpose if you are a cyclist as there is little time to pass safely
