“Walking to Beaconsfield station on Monday, a toddler was run over almost in front of me, in Maxwell Road, right by St Mary’s School.
“I understand the toddler is OK, but the incident made me wonder, what could we do to make sure no other child is injured or worse?
“I realised this terrible incident perhaps captures many of the things wrong with our town.
“That same morning, there was yet another accident on the M40 so traffic had once again been diverted onto the A40 and a gas leak in a garden development meant there was a roadblock at a cutthrough road which added to the traffic chaos.
“When I enquired if we could get a pedestrian crossing Maxwell warned money.
“Traffic and parking are beyond a joke. The town’s infrastructure cannot cope any more.
“To improve the town we could:
Ban parking in London End, offset by a large car park;
Add more floors to the station’s muti-storey car park and increase prices;
Ban parking between 11 am and midday on streets within two miles of the station, except for those with permits;
Build a multi-storey car park behind Marks and Spencer’s and/or behind Cardain House.
“I do not claim to have the answers, but collectively, we have to try to do something to make Beaconsfield better – and safer – for ourselves, our children and grandchildren.” installed Road I there was
