My first reaction to the council report recommending lifting access restrictions to At Andrews Street South was anger. My recollection of the workshop I attended was that there were physical changes proposed, better signing of the restrictions and marked crossing points for pedestrians. My table opted against full closure but never meant that to mean the exact opposite. For full details click here.
I have been urging the police to enforce these restrictions, and despite many vehicles getting away with using the road illegally, many do avoid it. To lift restrictions for 18 months, as recommended, would simply mean that if that didn't work we could never pull back even to the current level of disobedience.
