Key quotes from impacted residents

“As a cyclist, the road is barely wide enough to pass a car going the opposite direction.”

“It will be dangerous for people cycles and cars if its one way to cars it has to be one way to everyone including bikes scooters skateboards etc.”

“It’s already dangerous as a lot of cyclists consider the pavement as a legitimate means of transit.”
