Direct quotes from respondents

“To improve Lake Road, the road will have to be made wider to get the cycle lane or are you proposing to take the parking away?”

“A complete rethink of the road system around the north side of commercial road would be better.  Find a solution without roundabouts would be a start.”

“I am happy for my journey times by car to be negatively impacted if it means people can travel more efficiently by bus and bicycle.”
