Key quotes from Orchard Road residents

“I live at the other end of Orchard Road so mostly just concerned this pushes more traffic through the Talbot Road entry which can be a bit tricky already […] I’d prefer the closure at the Lidl end of Orchard road as it would help reduce traffic on that dangerous corner, make it safer to cross near the schools.”

“Maybe some temporary barriers during a pilot scheme, I’m concerned what the impact on the top of Talbot Rd might be?”
