Key quotes from impacted residents

“I agree with one way from Fawcett Road to Jessie Road, would be the best option based on what I see on a daily basis.”

“Agree to Talbot Road one way but delivery drivers to school and bin lorries tend to reverse into Bramble from Fawcett Road because they cannot turn  into Talbot at the junction to Bramble/Talbot. How would they then be able to deliver and empty bins?”
