  1. Traffic accidents are now weekly occurrence at either the junction before birchington vale or the one on the corner leading to the acol turnoff.there needs to be 20mph prior to the 1st junction as it is blind spot for anyone coming onto shottendane and maybe even lights or round about on the main junction. Cars do not slow down on the shottendane rd even though this is notorious for accidents and cars coming from birchington or manston on the main junction are travelling at 60mph even passing the wonder there are so many rta’s.peopke think they have time to pull out but are not judging the speed of the oncoming traffic.

    • And with no footpath leading from Birchington to Acol for most of the journey there is a huge danger for children walking to and from their homes in Acol. Most are having to get up into the farmers fields which are muddy in Winter or be mown down by vehicles speeding along these country lanes.

  2. Luckily the Range Rover hit a vehicle that put up a good fight! Imagine if it was a small family sized car!?!

      • The Range Rover Crashed into the t
        Front of the Recovery truck, the Aygo was already on the back of the recovery truck.
