THE TWO dual carriageways serving north Tendring have claimed more lives than any other roads in the district, according to crash map figures.

There were 23 fatalities on roads from Harwich to East Bergholt between 2005 and 2011 – nine of which were on the A120 and nine on the A12.

According to a map using data from the Department of Transport, there were 18 accidents including two fatal crashes at renowned A120 junction Pellens Corner.

Accidents range from slight to serious and fatal.

Figures show there were also 20 incidents at A120 accident blackspot Hare Green, in which one person died in 2006.

The Highways Agency recently changed the crossing layout in an attempt to make it safer but the road has continued to have problems.

The data was put together by CrashMap which aims to allow people to find out more information about crashes on Britain’s roads.
