Another T Bone Rta At Meadowhead Junction!

Recommended Posts

Just been past top of Greenhill avenue about half hour ago, 3 ambulances and paramedics plus 2 police cars, hope everyone ok , it looked serious but think most ok, might have been one stuck in car, where it was T Boned , why on earth hasnt this junction been sorted its the filter lane than crosses over onto Greenhill avenue .

i am sure a lot of drivers think this is light controlled and dont give way properly, it should be light controlled here as a lot of drivers dont understand the set up the oncoming traffic only has to stop if the pedestrian crossing is used.

seen at least 5 accidents here same reason, road planners have no idea and nor do some drivers! not be long before a fatality here.

You’d have to be an idiot to mistake a green light in the form of an arrow indicating straight ahead for one that gives you right of way when turning right.

Even an idiot doesn’t look at his phone when making a right turn.

I would say the main problem is inexperienced drivers incapable of judging the speed of approaching traffic, making a dash for it and stalling.

The speed limit has nothing to do with it.

Although that maybe true as some will be drivers that learnt during covid when traffic was lighter, the main cause, in my opinion, seems to be that the 'me, me, me' type attitudes are becoming increasingly common on the roads. The 'I must get in front' & 'I'm not waiting a few seconds' types.

Road junction is fine, it's some of the idiot drivers on the roads, that don't know how to drive properly.

 

You see it daily, not just in Sheffield but across the country. Since lockdown ended, there seems to be even more idiots on the roads!

I'll be very surprised if that stadium ever gets built.

Yes. But there are many idiots.  The real idiots are the City Highways people who "designed" thus road layout with the money put up by the St James developers. Ever since that infernal place opened it's been a nightmare at Meadowhead. I wrote to them at the time and predicted accidents. They took no action. These RTCs are the result. There were almost never any before the pedestrian crossing and lights were installed.  Somebody should be sacked for gross incompetence. But as we know all too well, that never happens in local government....

Mind you, for real incompetence you have to ask how they allowed the layout in the car park at St James?  Why could it not be a clockwise circulation? Half the time the jams on the roads are because of the back up from the T junction in the car park.  Madness!  No wonder so many people choose to park on the residential roads of Meadowhead. I wonder what the lovally elected |Councillors have to say about it?  Or that worthy snoozepaper The Star?
