The number of serious accidents has dropped by 86% after a new scheme to improve road safety was implemented on Canvey Way, South Essex.

Following two fatal incidents in 2008, a 700,000 scheme was put in place to bring the accident rate down.

A new 50mph speed limit was introduced along with average speed cameras, lay-bys were closed and the road was resurfaced with anti-skid material.
