A £400,000 scheme to reduce accidents at the notorious Kings Ripton junction with the A141 is due to start on Easter Tuesday, April 14. The move follows the death of 16-year-old pedestrian Warren Hay in May 2007 as he crossed the Huntingdon northern bypass on his way to the playing fields at Jubilee Park, and a number of accidents involving right-turning traffic. The works include installing traffic signals at the junction with a staggered pedestrian crossing on the A141. This will help cars turning right as well as making it safer for people crossing the road using the link between Sapley Road and Kings Ripton Road, Cambridgeshire County Council said. The street lighting around the junction will also be upgraded to conform to the current standards. The scheme is being jointly funded by Cambridgeshire County Council, Huntingdonshire District Council and Huntingdon Town Council.
