Do you have any further comments or concerns about the location and/or operation of the crossings?

Comments:Speed bumps down Nacton Rd's slip road. Junction changes - Maryon Rd/;Nacton Rd. Lights and congestion cause frequent problems and use of slip road as high speed alternative. Parking on the wide paths is a problem for peds and cyclists. My concerns are restricted to the wider effects of the crossings. - can measures be taken to ensure that air quality doesn't deteriorate? Is it monitored even? - More traffic more noise - measures to reduce? - More traffic means more cyclists using the pavement. Cycling lanes give licence to cyclists to use all pavements, increasing their sense of s***? at the expense of pedestrians. But I'm at a loss to suggest an alternative and resigned to having to think of the pavement as open to light traffic and acting accordingly.
