Proposed changes to St Vincent Street / Sheepcote Street junction
At the moment, a bus gate stops motor traffic flowing down St Vincent Street. This makes the junction safe for the many families walking their children to the local primary schools. The new proposals have put the pedestrian crossing in an inconvenient location and will speed up the flow of motor traffic. This reduces safety for pedestrians walking here. There should either be toucan crossings or a mini-roundabout with pedestrian crossing islands on each arm.
