A road closure is in place following a three car crash in Birchington this morning (November 14).
Kent Police was called at around 8.30am to a report of the crash on Manston Road, at the Shottendane Road junction.
Officers and South East Coast Ambulance Service attended the scene where a woman was treated for injuries and then taken to a local hospital for further medical attention.
The road remains closed while patrols make arrangements for recovery of the vehicles.
Not surprised at that junction. People don’t stop when it clearly states ‘stop’.
Interesting Dave, I’ve not come across people not stopping at that junction but every time I arrive there, either from shottendane or Margate hill, so many cars hurtle along Manston road, I know they have priority but it’s common sense to approach any junction with caution, not just shoot through regardless 🤷🏼♂️
I travel along Manston Road often and on several occasions I’ve had cars pulling out in front of me from both Shottendane Rd and Margate Hill. I don’t “hurtle” but many don’t seem to anticipate cars going straight ahead towards Birchington rather than turning off. I agree it’s a very dangerous junction, to be taken very carefully.
Wise to slow right down there. Just yesterday I had someone pull out in front of me there.
Spot round-about, with the necessary adjustments (BIG SIGNS). Cheapest way to deal with it!
spot roundabouts are not the answer as most drivers ignore them, they just drive over them , the obvious answer is for all drivers to approach junction with caution, but unfortunately you’ve got more chance of winning the lottery.
