Back to endless lines of traffic
Without even trying the aborted traffic plan for Woodbrook and environs for at least one week with the new school term, we are back to square one with the endless lines of bumper-to-bumper traffic as experienced yesterday morning.
Needless to say, this afternoon will be just as bad, but certain people "like it so". Now we will never know if the plan would have helped the situation or not.
As I have said before, while I agree that the overall plan was a bit too much of a bite to swallow, there was, and still is need for some changes on certain streets to avoid the "bottlenecks".
The traffic in Woodbrook and St James has become noticeably worse over the past three years.
After all the streets were laid out over 50 to 60 years ago, so now with tens of thousands more cars on the roads, you can't expect to continue with the same traffic plan and not expect to have problems during the peak hours.
Have you ever noticed the number of new cars in the lot at the end of Wrightson Road and then all of a sudden the lot is empty?
This is an ongoing process. Where do you imagine all those cars go? Certainly not to Guayaguayare or Cedros. At least those people who wanted the plan stopped, have nothing to complain about now —or do they?
