It is good to see WCC in the Eastern Ward starting a conversation about transport issues in the ward. There is opportunity now to establish a priority for low carbon emission options. This means first priority for pedestrians, then public transport. Think of bus stops and shelters, cross walks, handicap car parks, perhaps even overbridges being prioritized to enable shoppers and walkers a safe and easy trip for themselves and their bags.
This is a long term view and the consultation should not be hurried. It is time to set up a series of public meetings in the ward, and to enable individuals to use their social media to communicate with WCC on these issues.
