  • Colchester Road closed for an accident for the second time this week! And they reckoned it didn't need a 30 mph limit a few years ago. Well, as a resident I would feel a lot safer if people had to drive along my road at 10mph less... Accidents are regular along the so called "bypass" so lets hope it never happens on one of those all too frequent days when the Orwell Bridge is shut as well.

  • Firstly, let me make it clear, Drink Driving has got nothing to do with Speed Limits !, Colchester Road is a very safe road at 40mph, it is the people who do NOT concentrate on their driving that cause accidents !!, they do not anticipate what others are going to do !
