In response to Chris Austin’s letter (Herald, October 29) about traffic calming on Durrington Hill, both Exmore and Ivydore are comparatively new and wide roads with footpaths on both sides, whereas Durrington Hill is an ancient highway with a single very narrow footpath on the one side only.
If he had ever studied and witnessed the footfall up and down this footpath compared with Exmore and Ivydore he would appreciate the danger these people, and especially the schoolchildren, experience every day.
Does he really believe drivers are now going to use Exmore? Why would they?
Most of the traffic using that road comes from the estates bordering Exmore.
If he is so concerned about accidents he should be supporting this much needed scheme and await the results of the ongoing survey of the effects on there road.
