Reverse the flow

THE current seafront roadworks are killing the businesses along the seafront, but there is a simple way to help.

THE current seafront roadworks are killing the businesses along the seafront, but there is a simple way to help.

Simply reverse the direction of the traffic in the one-way section along the seafront.

At the moment the traffic is directed up over the hills of Weston and only locals can easily find their way to the seafront.

Reverse the direction of traffic and all visitors will then come along past all the open premises and will be able to reach Birnbeck with ease. They can then follow the signs to exit the town either via the town centre, Worle or Kewstoke.

But then, why would the council bother? It's too much like hard work for those involved to engage their brains and think about the problem in a systematic way.

Take the planned work at the Hutton Moor roundabout. They allow the new retail park but do not consider the increased traffic flow. They react to events instead of plan for them.

With the new lights on the roundabout it is naive of the council to think that it will improve the traffic flow at peak times. Between Winterstoke Road roundabout and the airport roundabout there will now be four sets of lights, not so long ago there was just one.

These lights do not seem to be synchronised but work on their own timings, and as such will just create more start-stop driving and increase delays.
