THIS situation of Hyde Street being closed has gone on for too long, as we really need to have it reopened now.

It is causing real chaos. If a police car, ambulance or a fire engine on Jewry Street needs to get round there well they can’t – this could be a life or death situation.

The road narrowing has caused real problems.

Southampton have taken theirs away and so has London. Someone from Hampshire County Council should stand on the corner of North Walls and see how many people ride down there. It is zero.

When I walk into town I walk past that spot and I have seen nobody riding down North Walls.

Pollution is getting really bad as you have cars stopped in Jewry Street, City Road and Andover Road and Stockbridge Road is jammed up. Sometimes I have traffic which goes past my house.
