A number of villagers have contacted the Parish Council over recent months, concerned that the A361, Neat Lane and B3135 crossroads, at the top of Whitstone Hill, is very dangerous, and asking that we try and improve the situation. In fact, an accident with four vehicles has occurred there in the last few weeks, involving all three emergency services and closing the road for a period.

Avon and Somerset Police have recently inspected the crossroads and approved a monitoring site for Pilton Speedwatch to collect weekly data nearby. Our initial data from our first sessions there, show a large amount of high-end speeding that must be contributing to the frequency of accidents at the junction.

We are hoping that our weekly presence will, over time, reduce the speeding and therefore the frequency of accidents.
