    MP Rosie Cooper has finally received correspondence from Lancashire County Council’s Highways Chief over concerns she raised about road safety on County Road.

    She raised the issues in 2017 and urged LCC to reconsider their previous response which indicated that they weren’t going to take action on speed issues or alternative road safety or traffic improvements.

    Cooper said at the time: "I am urging LCC to take a proactive approach and not wait for more casualties to occur, or even fatalities."

    The Highways Authority, following the death of a driver at the junction of County Road and Green Lane/Hayfield Road just before Christmas, and after further pressure from Rosie, have responded that they will now be reconsidering this junction.

    Yesterday, she told QLocal: "I urged the County Highways months ago to take a proactive approach and not wait for someone to die, but no action was considered and tragically a driver died in December.

    “This and other junctions cannot just be left as they are while crashes, injuries and deaths are allowed to continue. We must act before not after deaths or serious injuries.

    “County Road has many junctions some with lights and some without, and we should be ensuring that the road is as safe as it can possibly be to reduce the chances of further accidents occurring.

    “I said it previously that Government guidance might steer one way, but common sense and local knowledge needs to have influence so we are not waiting for a death on the road before action is taken, but this was ignored.

    “Lancashire County Council must take action urgently to make these junctions safer.”

    when I was 15 , I would see many nasty accidents at this junction , one was Triumph Herald that went under the front of a pick up truck .... it broke up when towed out from under , so its taken 40 years to realise
