§ Mr. Eldon Griffiths
asked the Secretary of State for Transport how many accidents involving personal injury have occurred on the A11 within a distance of one mile or thereabouts on either side of the A11 junction in Elveden village, Suffolk, indicating in each the fatalities, if any, involved.
§ Mrs. Chalker
Since the beginning of 1977 there have been 60 personal injury accidents within a distance of 1.6 miles either side of the junction. Two involved two fatalities each, and three one each. A 50 mph speed limit through the village has been introduced recently and the junction has been improved. The case for an Elveden bypass is also being investigated.
