“Whose stupid idea was it to direct diverted Tennyson Rd traffic along Byron Rd? It is narrow, heavily parked and generally unsuitable for the buses.

Hopefully, the disruption will be brief. Meanwhile, a message to drivers of taxis, skip lorries, 4x4s and buses. SLOW DOWN ON THIS ROAD!”

    What other road could they possibly use?

  • tishwash  |  January 28 2013, 6:11PM

    p.s. it's still a 30 on that road, do you speed in other roads?

    A bit of common sense. Firstly, there are traffic-calmed routes. Also, wider routes. My thoughts would be Devon Ave, Alstone Lane, Brooklyn Road. Alternatively, get the developer of the old Spirax site to pay for temporary calming in Byron Rd. I understand this work needs doing, and that there will be some disruption. Fine. A tad miffed at the lack of notice or consultation.

    current diversion = 0.3miles, your propsal = 1.4 miles. I'm sure you can cope :) I've no idea why it's closed I haven't even bothered to try going up there on a bike, I take the diversion if I go that way anywhere.

    also your diversion goes past a school, extra traffic on the road next to a school at rush hour isn't a brill idea

    Tishwash. I accept your point about the school.

    better notice of course would of been good though
