Key quotes from impacted residents

“Making all vehicles turn left will create even more chaos at the Bramble Road/Talbot Road junction. As refuse collection vehicles cannot exit Bramble Road into Talbot Road because there is not enough turning space.”

“Large deliveries, loading works vehicles, surely the bike racks and planters would be better suited outside the school which would stop unauthorised parking making it safer.”
