Driver calls for  'Keep Clear' sign in Holyport Road following crash

The Royal Borough is looking into measures to stop stationary traffic blocking junctions in Holyport Road, after a car accident highlighted visibility problems.

Road works in Windsor Road are causing queuing traffic in Holyport Road

Monica Rouf was taking three of her children to school when her car was involved in a collision as she pulled out of Aysgarth Park onto Holyport Park on Tuesday, November 19.

The mum-of-four says that traffic queuing towards the road works on Windsor Road restricts visibility for drivers turning right onto Holyport Road.

This means drivers leaving Aysgarth Park have to edge their cars out to be able to see vehicles coming from the left.

Thankfully Monica and her family were unharmed.

She describes the junction as a 'lottery'.

The council's highways manager, Ben Smith, said he has received emails from residents requesting keep clear signs.

He said: "As a result of that we will look at it to see if it's feasible.

"Someone will go down there, take a look at it during the course of this week and get back to them."
