B4439 Hockley Road – Little Shrewley: Casualty reduction scheme

Hockley Road is a rural road situated to the west of Warwick. The road consists of a series of bends and there is restricted visibility at certain points along the route.
The location in question consists of a sharp bend on the approach to Little Shrewley from a westerly direction. A number of personal injury collisions have occurred due to excessive speed and the sharpness of the bend, which have resulted in vehicles leaving the carriageway and entering adjacent fields.
The bend was assessed in order to reduce collisions caused by loss of control and to address excessive speeds.
The scheme consists of:

  • Improvements to signing
  • Improvements to the road lining
  • A vehicle activated sign for west-bound traffic
