Direct quotes from respondents

“If motoring habits, employment, shopping etc are inevitably all going to change, and more “able bodied” are going to be encouraged to walk, scoot or cycle and electric vehicles will cut pollution why bother to spend money on alterations?”

“A lot of the hold ups are created by the strange timing of the lights.  Perhaps that could be looked into.”
