Two drivers were reported to have been “shaken-up but not seriously hurt” in a two-car crash at the junction of Westbourne road and Augusta Road this morning.
Police closed Westbourne Road to traffic in both directions whilst a recovery team loaded the damaged vehicles onto lorry .
The junction is a difficult one for unwary drivers who often fail to see approaching traffic on Westbourne Road – one of the main traffic arteries from Sully into Penarth – as they emerge from Augusta Road and Raisdale Road opposite.
Absorbent material was scattered on the road to soak up fluids from the two cars . The road was re-opened to normal traffic after about an hour .
It’s accidents such as this which call into question whether the present infrastructure of Penarth can cope with increased traffic from the hundreds of new homes planned for Sully ..
