I see Nottinghamshire County Council are taking local peoples concerns and the Chad campaign very seriously

I see someone has kindly parked a blue car for sale on the pavement just before the junction of Bishops Walk on Cuckney Hill with the car facing traffic coming down the hill, so now we have people coming down Cuckney Hill towards the junction looking over to see how much the parked car is up for sale. An accident waiting to happened!

Yes and it makes coming out of the Bishops Walk junction more difficult as you don't have a clear view up Cuckney Hill.

I travel around a lot and I really can't see how Cuckney Hill is any more dangerous than Warsop Windmill for example. Is it not a case of someone beeing very unfortunate?

I'm not convinced the mini roundabouts are an improvement to be honest. People coming from Edwinstowe hardly slow at all. I managed to cope with the triangle when I was learning to drive.

Hi Guys,

First time i've posted on this subject.
I do about 30,00 to 35,000 miles per year throughout the East and West Midlands, Lincolnshire and into North Wales.

There are some very dangerous places around the area that I travel and I don't see the Cuckney stretch being one of the major danger spots in the area that I travel.

I do believe however that there are 2 or 3 possible improvements that could be done other than speed cameras.
These would be;
1. Remove the lay by's that are at the top of a blind summit. There is no reason whatsoever that these should be in the location that they are.
2. When returning to Warsop in an early evening on a sunny day, it is very dark within the area at the top of Cuckney Hill. The trees either side of this road here should be trimmed right back to allow greater light to be visible.
3. The stretch from Worksop all the way to Warsop is a very quiet road right through and there are limited / no reasons to slow through Cuckney itself. Perhaps there should be a set of traffic lights at Cuckney itself, so at least slow the traffic making drivers think about their speed. Believe me this has worked elsewhere, most notably on the A614 near Springwater golf club. The number of idiotic drivers along this route has been greatly reduced, or at least their driving has been improved.

The best alternative would be to have 50 mph speed cameras along this route BUT they would have to be average speed cameras and not fixed. I do think though that even if you had average speed cameras, without doing one or all of the points mentioned above, that any of the accidents would have been preventable.

Here's hoping the authorities value life over money.

It looks like the police have had another (yesterday and today) successful afternoon on Cuckney Hill catching speeders.

There are notices on lamposts on Cuckney Hill stating that the road is to become a 30mph limit for 250 yards from the Bishops Walk junction.

I don't know why they bother, no-one seems to take any notice of the existing speed limits anyway :roll:
