And they want to add supermarket traffic to this?
The St Peters St supermarket plan is rumoured to go to the planning committee next month. It will add 710 car journeys an hour to this road...
This is Buckand Hill and was taken at lunchtime today (24/8/13). The queue stretches to the traffic lights, 500m up the hill. It is a regular occurrence up Buckland Hill, especially on Saturdays and there is a similar queue in the other direction along St Peters St to the gyratory.
Another 710 cars? They simply won't get in or out.
