The Big Plan
I see that plans have been unveiled to overhaul part of Barrows road system, now some of it I like, particularly the right turn into Rawlinson St from Abbey Rd being reinstated. But it doesn’t go far enough we have a great opportunity to smooth the flow of traffic on Abbey Rd by getting rid of one or two sets of lights. How about we stop up the Dalton Rd end of Hartington St that would do away with the need for traffic lights there, next we stop up the Abbey Rd end of Cheltenham St (it’s only a bottleneck with parked cars anyway) and maybe put in a mini roundabout. Or am I being cynical in thinking maybe it’s not about making things easier for the motorist at all! Whatever they do it will lead to lots of confused motorists scratching their heads for a month or two.
