Regular crashes at the A5/Cowpastures Lane junction

Vehicles crash through my fencing as they overshoot the T junction from Cowpastures Lane to A5 at Heathencote just south of Towcester. This happens several times a year and it needs crash barriers to prevent the vehicles ending up in my fields. This happened again on the weekend of 28th/29th November and caused huge damage to my stock fencing and land. The drivers never report it or notify me and it leaves my livestock including horses vulnerable to escaping on to the A5

  • Since my last report there have been two further incidents at this spot, both times in foggy conditions. It is obvious that the signage approching this junction from Cowpastures Lane is not adequate and drivers are not slowing down in time to negotiate the T junction safely.
