New fears over road perils

A CRASH in Fishponds Road close to the site of the planned McDonald's drive-through has provoked new safety concerns.
It happened on August 31, when a motorcyclist became trapped under a van after a collision and had to be cut free by firefighters.
The rider, a man in his 20s, was taken to hospital with leg and shoulder injuries.
Members of the campaign group, Say No to McDonald's in Fishponds, have always argued that the road is busy and dangerous and that the development of the fast-food restaurant - approved at a public inquiry earlier this year - will add to the risks.
Some members have asked for additional conditions to be placed on demolition of the old tile warehouse at the site to ensure that debris does not add to the road dangers.
