SK1424 : Accident black-spot near Newborough, Staffordshire

Accident black-spot near Newborough, Staffordshire.
Accident black-spot near Newborough, Staffordshire.
A plethora of road signs and markings warn road users of the crossroads that has become an accident black-spot and has sadly claimed many lives over the years. The image is taken from the B5234 Abbots Bromley to Burton upon Trent road, looking towards Needwood. The A515 Lichfield to Ashbourne road crosses right to left. At the junction, the view right towards Lichfield is reasonable. However, the view left towards Ashbourne is not clear until the road user is right on the junction, due to the acute angle of the roads and even then, visibility is further reduced by the traffic from the left approaching at speed down a short, steep hill. Vicar's Hill Farm can be clearly seen on the skyline.
