A second crash today is compounding traffic problems around St Ives.

An ambulance and a fire engine were en route to other jobs at 1.10pm when they came across a two-vehicle crash outside Huntingdon Garden and Leisure, in Huntingdon Road, Wyton.

More to follow.

  • When are they going to realise that traffic lights are needed desperately at the Huntingdon Garden Centre entrance. It really is a fatality waiting to happen. I for one am unable to see far towards the St.Ives direction when I come out of the garden centre, there must only be a distance of 20 metres from the entrance to the sharp turn to the left. This is made worse by a hedge that is hanging on the path, making visibility worse. With the amount of cars that ignore the speed limit it really is a dangerous junction. Also cars sit up by backside when I turn left into the garden centre,from the Huntingdon direction.

  • This junction is a fatality waiting to happen, even though the speed along the Huntingdon St.Ives road has been reduced. what is needed is a roundabout or traffic lights like we have on the A141 at the Abbots Ripton Road junction, these lights where only put in after the tragic loss of a young mans life. Lets hope that the council acts before a life is lost outside the garden center.
