SAFTEY IS "PRICED OUT"

Local residents are angry that road saftey improvements cannot be afforded due to other projects being undertaken by the council instead

They where due to install new speed bumps and traffic lights to some of the roads around the area. Instead the council have decided to add in a complex system of 8 mini-roundabouts, rising bollards and pedestrian crossings due to the fact the pavement has been ripped up to make room. "This will just cause more accidents" said bob atkins of home lane. "Those mini roundabouts can be deadly in the rain because of the tightness of the turn required, rising bollards can lift up unprepared people's cars and damage them and the crossings onto small roundabouts and across the busiest parts of the road are an accident waiting to happen". The council have already approved construction work however,it is expected to take 3 years,during which time 5 streets will be closed off totally to make room for all the construction gear. We asked a council official, mister J.A.Hyde about peoples concerns and the fact the council didnt even tell anyone about the plans until after construction had began. Mister hyde said "We have approved the plans despite some criticisms from the public". We pointed out to him that the public might have not been so harsh had the plans been announced before construction started,his comments on this where "We have approved the plans despite some criticisms from the public". We had to leave the interview at that point to cover some sports news,in closing mister hyde said "We have approved the plans despite some criticisms from the public"
