SOME Bury roads are more dangerous than others ­— and an interactive map has revealed exactly which ones you need to be aware of.

CrashMap is a digital tool that identifies how many serious and fatal collisions occurred in a certain area ­— it also shows you where the crash occurred.

The data is taken from official police records and Government statistics.

According to the map, in Bury there have been 167 serious and fatal car crashes between 2010 and 2020.

Bury and Bolton Road is one of the most dangerous roads as there have been 20 serious and two fatal incidents in the last 10 years.

Four of these serious incidents happened very close together, near to the junctions of Colville Drive and Buckingham Drive.

Of the two fatal crashes, one happened on New years Eve 2016, near The Top Bull pub, and involved one vehicle and two casualties.

The second happened in April 2011, near to Travis Perkins builders' merchant, and involved two vehicles and one casualty.
