  1. What a lot of disruption and expense just to limit the pollution from electric cars waiting at the level crossing

    While I understand that the road closure is necessary, there are some issues that SCC need to look into.

    Firstly, the road closure fencing has been placed too close to the Foreman Park estate entrance, causing a bottleneck and the need for traffic lights. This could have been avoided if the fencing was placed further away.

    Secondly, the traffic lights on Foreman Road and in Foreman Park are causing unnecessary delays. It appears that the site was not surveyed correctly, as the removal of parking on the left-hand side would have eliminated the need for traffic lights.

    Thirdly, the diversion signage is misleading and causing more traffic on Foreman Road, as drivers are being directed to turn into Foreman Park to turn around and go back up Foreman Road.

    Lastly, there is a lack of consideration from the workmen and lorry drivers, who park their vehicles along Foreman Road, blocking traffic and the traffic lights.
