Accidents on Diversion route

The town website has received reports that a number of traffic collisions are occurring in Priory Lane, Freefolk.

Some drivers are using Priory Lane as a diversion due to the closure of the Newbury Road railway bridge in Whitchurch.

Reports say that traffic is “very fast and there have been several near misses and some small accidents”.
There has also been some damage to a garden wall.

Drivers are being requested to drive to the conditions of the road and to remember that this is a narrow country lane.
