Hull’s worst section of road for serious crashes and fatalities has been identified. Ferensway leading into Beverley Road up to the Clough Road junction is the most dangerous section of road according to an interactive map. Data published by Ageas and the Road Safety Foundation shows Hull had 537 serious or fatal crashes between 2017-2019. For the latest traffic and travel news click here. The map they have created colour codes some of the major roads from green which is low risk, then onto yellow, orange, red and then black being the worst. The Ferensway/Beverley Road section is the only area coloured black but two main roads in and out of the city have been deemed ‘high risk’ and coloured red.
