Chip. Shoulder. Unsubstantiated allegation.
Not an allegation, more of an observational assumption. It's just that there are many other rat runs in the area that don't get such special traffic calming measures. No chip, Ivanhoe (although the tone of your post would suggest that my post upset you. Chillax, as the yoofs say). It's just that i live along a traffic rat run and I think it would be good if our area could get the same treatment. I shall make an enquiry to our wonderful local authority. If I am knocked back, I shall ask them why Trinity Square was treated differently. Good day to you.
Prior to Trinity st being closed off to traffic the good people of Boyfield st asked the council for sleeping policeman as it was being used as a rat run/drag racing strip and kids played out there,either side of boyfield st is Silex and Lancaster streets which did not have the same problem of children playing out in the street,needless to say the council refused,a few months later Trinity st was closed off.
You can imagine how it was viewed.
