HAS anybody from Weston Town Hall bothered to work out how many parking spaces have been lost in the streets of Weston since their grand traffic easing scheme has been implemented?I notice they have even lost two to three spaces right outside the Mercury office and for the life of me cannot see any rhyme or reason other than to waste taxpayers' money. On nearly all the main roads we have a bulge of pavement so that it has restricted traffic flow. I ask the question - has the traffic been able to move easier?Or is all this being put in place for the proposed town pay and display plans? Driving down Winterstoke Road to B&Q, I got held up in the traffic and I wondered why they could not have put the traffic lights on the town side by the entrance to Brunel Ford. This would mean traffic leaving Asda could turn into Winterstoke Road with ease, and each lot of traffic would take it in turn to get to the roundabout.Parking in Weston now is a nightmare. I am sure the visitors think so, as I know from people's remarks to me, the locals do.LAURENCE F ORME - Shrubbery Avenue, Weston
