Calls for safety review of accident hotspot bridge

Campaigners fear someone could die unless urgent
 action is taken at a bridge in Ambergate which has been hit by lorries five times in six months.

The railway bridge next to the Hurt Arms was hit again on January 7 when articulated lorry over–turned.

Now, residents have claimed accidents are at their highest level ever at the 4.8–metre–high bridge and are demanding highways bosses at Derbyshire County Council urgently review the situation before there is a fatality.

Councillor for Ambergate Maurice Gent said: “There could be really serious accident one day someone is going to get seriously hurt. We have been lucky so far, but how long can that last?”
