Safety concerns have been raised with Highways England about the Duns junction on the A1 Berwick bypass.
Trevor Boult, of Castle Hills Farm Cottages, has labelled the Castle Terrace-Duns Road junction “an accident waiting to happen”.
He is calling for a filter lane to be created on the southbound lane for traffic turning left into Castle Terrace.
“The junction is an accident waiting to happen or, more accurately, a foreseeable location for a serious accident,” said Mr Boult.
“I have been personally involved in three near-miss incidents with vehicles immediately behind me whilst I was making the turn.”
Highways England asset manager Al-Amin Al-Hassan has replied to Mr Boult, saying that no injury collisions had been recorded in the last five years, adding: “An improvement for this junction therefore attracts a low priority compared with other locations.
“I can confirm there are currently no proposals to progress an improvement scheme at this junction.’
Mr Boult has asked Berwick MP Anne-Marie Trevelyan whether the policy of monitoring the junction for accidents is the best way to go about it.
“Highways England appears to say that a collision must occur before any changes might even be considered,” said Mr Boult.
The junction has had a number of safety improvements since the bypass opened in the early 1980s due to the number of accidents that occurred there.
