Follow on from FOI-1157-1516 Accidents pre and post the new lights at Gloucester Place and Melcombe Street: Unless I am mistaken, the 36 month period comparison period should now be available. Although I appreciate that the junction is likely to change with the two way system, I still think the full accident statistics for the 36 months before and after the change would be useful.
