Traffic Management and Pedestrians

The main area of concern highlighted was the town centre but comments also extended to the area around the new primary school.  Safety measures were needed to address the volume and speed of vehicles in addition to tackling the parking arrangements.  The issue of air pollution in the town centre due to the busy trunk road was raised as a significant concern.  It was voiced that the trunk road through the town centre was dangerous to pedestrians because of large vehicles, narrow pavements, a lack of safe areas to cross and inconsiderate parking.  Fast moving vehicles and narrow pavements in the area of the school were also noted as being of great concern to parents.  There was thought to be a need to review the parking arrangements in the town to encourage visitors in particular to stop off but to also re-consider the time-limits allowed on the main road or to remove the parking spaces altogether.  Pavements in general were also thought to be in very bad state of repair.
