by Helen Jarvis, 111 Ethelburt Avenue

A suggestion to solve the current problem of the Avenue being used as a cut-through would be to install bollards half-way alone, thus making a short cut impossible. I feel sure residents would not be opposed to using just one entrance and exit to their property.

Perhaps bollards and also a width constriction at either end of the road would deter speeding traffic and ‘short cutters’ alike.

This issue is a major concern to us being residents at the end of the road with young children. We are terrified of speeding traffic entering the Avenue and also using it as a turning point from Bassett Green Road. I do feel that I will never allow my boys to play in the front garden let alone participate in community life.

What do other residents think about this proposal?
