A34b

The A34 has reopened near East Ilsley. 

All lanes are now open but slow traffic is reported on the southbound carriageway.

The road was closed at 10.04am in both directions after a Land Rover and a trailer overturned.

Ambulance crews were called to the scene and one person was treated for minor injuries. 

The closure follows an accident on the M4 yesterday, which led to gridlock along the A4 from Newbury to Theale.

    This is becoming an all too regular occurrence. I now think it is time to reduce the speed limit to 50 mph enforced by average speed cameras throughost this notorious accident black spot.

      It's not to do with speed, its a well known fact that a landrover towing a trailer will turn over if braking and steering left or right at the same time.
