  1. That road should be 40mph not the current 60mph,and should have either traffic lights or a roundabout,too many accident’s happen there in the short time it’s been opened its crazy to keep letting it happen

  2. Residents are constantly calling for upgrades to this stretch of road. There have been numerous accidents at that turning towards Tunstall and at the junction to Brompton on Swale. The road needs widening and a turning lane adding and a roundabout (as originally planned) at “suicide junction”. Imperative if Catterick 52 project goes ahead!
