Re: Monthly meeting on Monday 21st

Suggest people read the CNJ two page article on this scheme. No monitoring of effects and impact on the disabled. Had the Council discussed a scheme with local people instead of imposing it unilaterally it could have worked. Read also GO Community page FB. As a cyclist of 45 years pedalling living in the area we do need to deal with commuting traffic. The Council got now £1.9m from GLA  - £1.1 back in Feb 2018. No work on broken pavements, potholes and blocked drains. We asked for a lights controlled crossing where a 15 year old was killed – no response. Those cycling along QC may notice at each end (Malden Road and Grafton Road) rising bollards in the road – a minor cycling hazard – These were put in over 20 years’ ago at a cost of ? £250k and have never been used. Cars regularly are forced to do 3 point turns outside Carlton school increasing pollution and dangers to pupils. Council officers advised local vehicle owners  to use Vicars Road despite it being narrow and having a care home and nursery school on it,  If councillors attend the meeting ask if they support the six month experiment. Only c 120 people living in the area support it.
