Since the creation of that junction, it seems to have an accident in close proximity to it nearly every week. Oblique angle and short slip road have anything to do with it?

Also a massive promotional advertising screen at the stadium facing the A12 . Clearly a distraction for motorists.

Strange that CBC allow this but happy stop a business on Bakers Lane telling customers they are still open even though Bakers Lane is closed to through traffic.

This had nothing to do with the junction or TV screen at the stadium. Wheel came off the Transit, lorry stopped and the Ranger ran into the back of it. Sorry if this spoils any speculation.
