Church Street no solution to problem

EDITOR – The new route up Church Street for double decker buses has every appearance of being selected by someone studying the map, not looking at the street as it really is.

The zebra crossing at the junction of Kidgate/Church Street/Monks Dyke Road serves a large population of school age children and youngsters, and is already extremely unsatisfactory in terms of safety.

Moreover, Church Street is not wide enough in places for the easy passage of buses, so the problems avoided in Mercer Row are simply being shifted to a new location.
