A MAJOR probe into safety on waterside roads that could have world wide implications was announced today by Cambridgeshire County Council - if they can get the funding to do it.

The announcement - which would inevitably focus on Fenland roads- could offer a significant shift in emphasis to improve safety.

"If successful this would be the first report of its kind in Britain," said a county council spokesman.

"With the help of independent researchers it would consider the dangers associated with waterside roads and the effectiveness of measures to address this. The project would be looking across the world for innovative solutions both in terms of engineering and education.

"It is proposed that this would then be published as a thoroughly researched study for authorities and agencies across the world to use. The project will build on previous work the county council has done looking at the particular problems faced in Cambridgeshire.
