Dale road? there's only one place where three cars could have hit each other & that's at the roundabout in the middle & surely that would effect both sides of the road?
I lived in Dale Rd so exactly where & how did this happen?

I rode past there a little while back, it was on Winchester Road at the top by Dale Road junction, not actually on Dale road itself.

It looked nasty.

was that a reference to me? I read the article which clearly stated Dale Road & as I lived there I could only think of one area in Dale road where three cars could hit each other.
I at no point said I'd seen it or was reporting it I never made any political point about it so if this was aimed at me your out of order.
I'm use to Left wing idiots just giving me the thumbs down on every subject but this post really?
.... still doesn't know his @rse from his elbow is this all you've got?
I know a right arsehole when I read your left wing C++p posts

I don't understand they close dale road and divert traffic down st James road. What. How's that help and what about westbound traffic. So all the housing estates of st James road gets snarled up with loads of traffic but westbound can still go straight down Winchester road. As there is traffic lights why not keep Winchester road fully open and let the police direct traffic. they can just turn left further up, at the roundabout if necessary.

Because there were three smashed up cars at the junction itself blocking it, and a fire crew in front of that at the top of the hill trying to free someone. You *couldnt* turn right off from Winchester road into Dale.

That's as maybe, but if trafic wants to turn from Winchester into Dale, whats the point of sending them down St James? It goes in totally the opposite direction!

there's a road further up they could have diverted traffic going to the hospital or to any road in that area & you come out a third of the way down Dale Road.
or even turn right at the Malvern
