Are roads around Newlands Corner safe enough?

Published at 5:10pm 8th May 2017.

Should more be done to tackle speeding drivers near Newlands Corner?

There's been a number of incidents in the area recently and some people have questioned whether the roads there are as safe as they could be.

The speed limit is currently 40mph, but is that enough?

We've been speaking to people in the area who have suggested a lower speed limit, a larger police presence and even speed bumps.

Here's what they had to say:


On Sunday (May 8) a motorcyclist was killed on the A25 between Newlands Corner and Silent Pool.

Officers were called just after 4pm to the crash between a Black Yamaha motorcycle and a Blue Toyota Estima car.

The motorcyclist was declared dead at the scene.

Although there is no evidence to suggest this incident was linked to speeding.
