I am utterly bemused by any arguments regarding improved traffic flow as a result of closing this junction.
If a minority of people caused the road to be reopened then I can only believe it is because the silent majority tend to suffer in silence, thus creating this alleged minority.
I travel from Bourne Road to my office at Springfields daily and have done so for 15 years.
I travel at different times of the day and this is always my preferred route whether I am travelling to or from Bourne Road.
When the road was closed I then often went past the Sir Halley Stewart Field and bus station to get back onto my preferred route via Swan Street, which was extremely frustrating. I hope this will be taken as one vote to keep the road open.
