Weirs Lane road is not wide enough for the three lanes of traffic between Peel Place and Abingdon Road, and traffic turning left from Weirs Lane is too regularly driven on the pavement from Peel Place to get past the traffic on their right going to City Centre/Westgate etc. Bollards stop this outside Tesco Super Store, and placing bollards or planters or trees between Peel Place and Tesco would make the pavements safer. Many residents and their children are at risk. We have lived here many years, but nothing has been done to stop this illegal action or the dreadful traffic of bonnet to bumper pollution.
Thank you for your enquiry. This issue has been passed onto the relevant team for investigation.
