Where are Barnsley's most dangerous roads? Where are Barnsley's most dangerous roads?


OVER the last few weeks, we've reported a number of stories where accidents have occurred on some of Barnsley's most infamous roads. 

Most recently, a schoolboy was run over on Derwent Road, Athersley South, after he stepped into the road from behind a bus and was then hit by a car.

Car accidents and collisions have also been reported on Racecommon Road near the town centre, the Dearne Valley Parkway and Rotherham Road in Brierley.

I've lived on park road 5 years and the accidents I've seen at the cross roads has been unreal, the traffic lights really need to be sorted out and turned to a filter light rather than give way.

Pontefract Road in Brampton. We have had 5 cars written off that have been parked outside our house, under a streetlight. Our neighbors cars have also been written off or crashed into. Cars speed up and Down this road and It definitely needs speed bumps, I've started a petition as well to try and get the councils attention

Roads are not dangerous. The idiots who drive on them are.

Park Road on a Saturday & Sunday. Normally when there's an event at Locke Park police place cones on Park Rd. Not on a weekend when the Park Run takes place. Cars parked on the wall side of the road causing single lane traffic. It's chaos and an accident waiting to happen.

I live on Kingsway Mapplewell, which is bad, it is not the road, it is cars parked on the road. It appears to me that it is not so much that their are bad roads, it is that all roads have become Car Parks. Drive with care.
