Four-car smash up at Stirling Corner, Borehamwood

Borehamwood Times: Four-car smash up at Stirling Corner Four-car smash up at Stirling Corner

Four cars were left damaged after a crash near Stirling Corner last night.

Nobody was injured in the smash-up, which happened just 100 yards from the A1, near Morrisons, just after 5pm.

A grey Audi, a silver Dodge Nitro, a Renault van and a silver land rover were all cleared from the carriageway by 7pm.

Two of the cars were badly hit but the other two were only left with minor scrapes and were able to be driven home by their owners.

Campaigners who say the area is a “death trap” for motorists are calling on 24-hour traffic signals to be installed in the area.

But at the time of the accident, the lights, which are currently only activated between 3.30pm and 6.30pm on weekdays, were switched on.

GLA member for Barnet Andrew Dismore has launched a safety survey in a bid to convince Transport for London (TfL), who own the roundabout, to take action.

This crash was not at Stirling Corner and has nothing to do with the safety concerns at Stirling Corner.

Where was it then?
Clearly this roundabout is a complete nightmare for so many people; TFL should listen and act. If you look at the roundabout in London Colney, it has a tenth of the traffic and slower, more visible approaches and yet it has, and rightly so full time lights. Maybe we need a crash involving a bus load of disabled orphans before TFL will pick up their ears and listen to the people who pay their wages. Totally arrogant bunch with little regard for locals and their commuting needs.
