Sys­tem is caus­ing de­lays across town

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Opinion -

HAVEN’T the peo­ple of Ash­ford suf­fered enough with the traf­fic chaos? What with the mess that the two-way traf­fic sys­tem cre­ated, surely the in­sti­ga­tor of that idea should have been given a knight­hood or a large pay out to move on. He should be in the pay of the petrol com­pa­nies for all the ex­tra fuel that is be­ing used to get around Ash­ford! And with the pol­lu­tion that the traf­fic light queues are caus­ing, we must have a good cov­er­ing over the town. Why no round­abouts that let traf­fic flow when roads are clear, in­stead of wait­ing for a light to change? And now we have the traf­fic lights once again in Brook­field Road. I waited 18 min­utes in the queue just to pass them. What is wrong with hav­ing a di­ver­sion? Traf­fic from Chart Road could turn left into Clock­house, con­tinue into Arlington and then turn left at the Cru­sader. The traf­fic could flow on a oneway sys­tem. P.J. Jack­son, Mead­ow­brook Close, Ken­ning­ton, Ash­ford.
