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

Comments:Increased traffic on Cliff Lane and Station Street, will have a negative impact on bus routes 6 & 15, making buses less attractive to use and more expensive to operate. The Junction between Luther Road Belstead Road is not suitable for increased traffic volume. Additional pedestrian crossings needed on Wherstead Road. Attenuation measures needed to prevent congestion in sensitive areas F.L. Vernon St and in roads used by public transport, support objectives 1,2,3 & 5 but not objective 4.
