Store would cause major traffic flow disasters
4:40pm Wednesday 15th August 2012 in Salisbury Letters
IAN Culverhouse has presented a very powerful argument for the Southampton Road supermarket site – from his company’s point of view (Journal, August 2).
However, he ignores what practically everyone else sees as the overriding disadvantage, that of going to or past it. Apart from the present twice daily and ever increasing blockage of the A36 there is certain to be a massive and immediate surge of traffic on Salisbury’s eastern bypass and chicken run, that of the minor road through Laverstock and its four schools and the bridge at Petersfinger At one stroke the “planners” and our elected representatives will achieve major traffic flow disasters on two roads.

I REGULARLY use the cycle lanes in Southampton Road. Before they were installed I didn’t like cycling there as one of my friends had been knocked over by a car.
