Car gone through fence again

Reported via desktop in the Structures (eg bridges, fencing, noise barriers) (NH) category anonymously at 16:03, Tue 10 May 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3515936.

Another car has gone through this fence when turning off the a31. My husband and I have put the fence back up to stop animals getting on the dual carriageway as this borders the open forest.

Please could this be looked at and repaired, and a cause for these accidents be established before a serious accident occurs

Kind regards Anita

  • Good evening, please could I have a response to this with an estimated timeframe?

    There have been multiple previous incidents regarding this fence and turning. Please could I suggest it be escalated again for a solution to avoid a problem with animals escaping onto the A31.

    Minstead Parish Council can look to offer a local contractor that will repair it in a timely fashion as this is a very recurrent problem
