Key quotes from impacted residents

“Putting in one-way roads will encourage the cars to drive faster, this helps slow them back down. Will enable you to have bikes going the opposite direction.”

“Would maybe encourage motorists to use more suitable alternative routes.”

“It might be possible to turn out of Bramble Road safely – very dangerous at any time due to poor visibility.”
