Central Leader - - OPINION -

whole car clangs and bangs.

I now think these mea­sures are put in place to try to force all traf­fic to stay on the main roads which in turn means the coun­cil doesn’t have to re­pair the side roads as of­ten.

Forc­ing traf­fic onto the main roads just causes more traf­fic chaos.

What are side streets for ex­cept as short­cuts to a des­ti­na­tion (and hous­ing of course).

I also ques­tion your ar­ti­cle as in ‘‘res­i­dents were con­sulted over the project and many were sup­port­ive’’.

Ig­no­rance is bliss as I was sup­port­ive also un­til I had to live with one out­side my house.

How about just putting up signs re­duc­ing the speed limit in these side streets and tick­et­ing those who don’t com­ply?

Much cheaper and the coun­cil would make a bit of money for road re­pairs in these streets.
