I SEE the temporary decision to block one lane on Bridge Foot as you head along the Academy has now become permanent.

It was first sold as something to help during the pandemic.

I am almost certain you can’t catch it from someone else in a line of traffic.

I suspect this is motivated by something else, although I am not sure what.

It won’t help traffic, if anything it creates more as traffic queues back both before and after the lights.

And it won’t stop accidents, rather create more.

I cannot understand the need for constant tinkering and messing about.

The council cannot leave things alone.

And every move they make only seems to make the situation worse.

It is maddening.
