GREAT EVENT BUT NEEDS FOOT TRAF­FIC PLANS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION - MIKE SMITH via email

LAST Satur­day’s Che­sham Car­ni­val was, as is al­ways the case, very well sup­ported and most en­joy­able.

There is how­ever one is­sue that does need ad­dress­ing.

Long af­ter the pro­ces­sion through the town had fin­ished, traf­fic was still backed up on the hill to­wards Amer­sham be­cause the ze­bra cross­ings be­tween the town cen­tre and the af­ter­noon’s ac­tiv­i­ties in Lown­des Park were in con­stant and con­tin­ual use, and quite rightly so, by pedes­tri­ans go­ing to and fro.

Would it not be pos­si­ble, on this one oc­ca­sion, to op­er­ate a sys­tem akin to those ap­plied out­side some schools in the morn­ing and af­ter­noon so that foot traf­fic can be stopped oc­ca­sion­ally to al­low a few ve­hi­cles through?
