In terms of safety statistics, the M26 is generally quite safe, with the majority of incidents occurring on junctions 23 and 24, leading to increased congestion at those points. Over the last five-year period, there have been 1,504 accidents on the M26 resulting in 413 injuries. However, the number of injuries and fatalities from those accidents has stayed relatively consistent over that time.
