MP calls for probe into A19 accidents

An MP has called for an inquiry into the number of accidents on a stretch of the A19 in County Durham.

Easington Labour MP Grahame Morris was responding to a BBC Newcastle Freedom of Information request, which found there were 23 accidents on a nine-mile stretch of the dual carriageway between Seaham and Peterlee in the 12 months to March.

None of the incidents involved fatalities, but Mr Morris said the figures showed improvements are needed to the road.

The MP added: "There are costs associated with these incidents, apart from the human tragedies, including those of the emergency services, delays to commuters and the impact on businesses.

"I think we need adequate resources to improve the A19 and I would like to know how cuts to police traffic enforcement has had an impact.

"It seems to me this is a bit of a lethal cocktail."

Transport minister John Hayes said that while accident cluster sites have been identified on the A19 between Testo's roundabout on South Tyneside and Seaham in County Durham, analysis had found driver behaviour to be the primary cause.
