New chicanes are dangerous at Chew Stoke end of Wallycourt Road

Reported via desktop in the Road sign damage category anonymously at 12:17, Tuesday 24 May 2022

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3547448.

I have to regularly use this road and since the new roadworks have been completed I have had several near misses on the speed chicane at the Chew Stoke end of Wallycourt road.

The chicanes are frankly dangerous - you are forced to go on the wrong side of the road on a blind bend. It is an unbelievably bad design - drivers coming both ways can't see each other and I nearly had a crash with a motorcycle last week here.

You can, in the space of just a few weeks, see skid marks by the chicanes. This is an accident waiting to happen

  • Thank you for your enquiry regarding the traffic calming installed on Walley Lane over the Chew Valley dam.

    The chicane on the bend at the Chew Stoke side of the dam requires drivers to give way to oncoming traffic, with signage being provided accordingly.
