Key quotes from impacted residents

“I agree that Bramble Road and Talbot Road should be one way, I however think that the flow should be coming in from Talbot down Bramble and then on Fawcett road. Bramble road is used as a cut through.”

“I agree with the one way and the bumps. I don’t agree with loosing [sic.] parking spaces […] when we come home we have to park 4/5 roads away as there aren’t any now.”

“Take away less than 5 parking spaces ideally as we already struggle to park. Parking on corners and such is already one of the causes for manoeuvring around here to be riskier than it should be […] The junction from Talbot to Goldsmith is tricky and creates congestion and I worry this might drive more traffic to that route causing problems so maybe traffic lights or something.”

“Parking is very hard to find in this area as it is – we should not be getting rid of parking spaces by greening, etc.”
