Last week Cambridgeshire County Council announced a �250,000 scheme to remodel the bends on the A1101 making them less tight. The scheme will have to compete for funding against other major road safety schemes.
However campaigners say the latest accidents reinforces the urgent need for a 40mph speed limit, solid white lines and fixed safety cameras.
Mrs Bucknor said: "This should not be continuing. We just hope that the council will get on and do this extra work that we are calling for. A little bit of widening and altering the camber of the road is not the whole answer. And we will continue putting pressure on the council.
