Also on Saturday there was a collision between a car travelling north along Tadcaster Road and a Royal Mail van that was turning onto Tadcaster Road from The Horseshoe. There were no indications that speed was a factor. Many residents have told us how concerned they are about getting onto Tadcaster Road at times when the traffic volumes are particularly heavy.

One junction has been improved following calls from local Lib Dem councillor Ashley Mason for action – the markings at the junction of Pulleyn Drive and Tadcaster Road have been re-painted.
