Acle Straight closed after crash

PUBLISHED: 15:47 26 October 2013 | UPDATED: 15:47 26 October 2013

The Acle Straight was closed for about 30 minutes earlier this afternoon after a two vehicle collision.

Firefighters from Acle and Great Yarmouth attended the crash near the Halvergate turn-off and used hydraulic rescue equipment to free one of the drivers who was taken to hospital by ambulance.

A police spokesman said there were only minor injuries and the road was reopened at 1.40pm.


  • Reopened at 1.40? Then how come it was still closed at 2pm when I went round the Acle roundabout and 2.20 when I was going round the Vauxhall roundabout!!? There's no such thing as dangerous roads, just dangerous drivers

  • 40MPH near the Halvergate turn off. If not overtaking or speeding however can an accident occur. Happens so often there though. Cameras needed maybe.

  • It's all down to the appalling driving of a significant minority. Speeding, use of phone and other devices at the wheel, 'red-light' jumping, tail-gating, illegal, dangerous and unsociable parking and just general poor driving - you can see all of these plus more any day of any week in and around Great Yarmouth. I'd like to see the law clamp down on these and make some serious examples before they become more accidents.

  • Every year the same tragic results on this awful piece of road. It has some very deep dips, even though the appearance is one of a straight clear road. Cannot be dualled it seems. So why not double yellow lines and speed cameras the whole length with 50 mph limit. It may mean that to travel its distance may take a few minutes more . But surely it is worth it to save one life or injury. Plus there would be the bonus of the speeding fine taxes.
