THE A1121 at Hubberts Bridge is the most dangerous stretch of road in our area, according to new statistics.

Figures released by the Department for Transport show the stretch of road has had 22 collisions involving death or serious injury over a 20-year period.

Over the same spell (1990-2010), Wrangle has had 20 similar incidents.

Stats at Leverton show 27.10 per cent of drivers exceed the 30mph speed limit.

In Boston, John Adams Way has had 127 incidents involving physical injury and nine deaths or serious injuries between 1990-2010.

Other information includes the A16 through Stickney which has had 13 collisions with four involving a death or serious injury since 1990, and shows the average speed driven along it last year was 33.90mph with 0.40 per cent of drivers going over the 40mph limit.

On the same stretch of road but south of Boston in Sutterton, there were 20 collisions with three deaths or serious injuries since 1990.

The average speed on this road in 2010 was 48.90mph, while 6.60 per cent of drivers were over the 60mph limit.

Police forces are due to publish the number of prosecutions from each permanent safety camera site in their area later in the year.

The DfT recently pushed local authorities to publish their speed camera data, claiming in August that 75 of those asked had done so.

However, the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership (LRSP) said it had been doing so long before being asked.

Visitors to the LRSP’s site can view data including how long certain roads are, their speed limit, when the camera was established and collision data relating back almost 20 years.
