SINCE JANUARY 2018 ON WIDCOMBE HILL THERE HAVE BEEN A TOTAL OF 8 ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS INCLUDING THE TRAGIC FATALITY OF BATH UNIVERSITY STUDENT HARRY CHAPPLE.

ON JANUARY 1st 2019 ANOTHER  ACCIDENT TOOK PLACE ON WIDCOMBE HILL WITH A CYCLIST LOSING CONTOL OF HIS BIKE AND COLLIDING HEAD ON WITH A WALL LEAVING HIM IN A CRITICAL CONDITION. 2 AIR AMBULANCES WERE CALLED TO THE SCENE.

WE ARE CALLING UPON LOCAL MP WERA HOBHOUSE TO INTERVENE DUE TO BATHNES COUNCIL’S REPEATED FAILURE TO ACT, DESPITE HAVING BEEN MADE AWARE OF THE DANGERS ASSOCIATED WITH THE LACK OF SPEED RESTRICTIONS ON THIS HILL FOR MANY YEARS.

LOCAL RESIDENTS FEEL THAT THIS HAS NOW GONE TOO FAR AND THAT THESE ACCIDENTS COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED SHOULD MEASURES HAVE BEEN TAKEN .

THE AIM OF THIS PETITION IS TO RAISE THE NECESSARY AWARENESS FOR IMMEDIATE URGENT MEASURES TO BE IMPLEMENTED TO PREVENT FURTHER FATALITIES.
