Park and Ride better answer

Friday, November 3, 2017 - 11:30

From Bill Moore, Gunville: 
I HAVE some sympathy with the letter ( How to cut Newport traffic nightmare, CP 27-10-17)). 
However, I feel this suggestion to build a bridge over the Medina north of Newport, will only increase the amount of traffic in and around Newport. 
A cheaper solution would be to create a park-and-ride facility at the Racecourse roundabout where the circus big top was recently sited. 
At present there are some seven buses an hour passing this location serving Newport, Ryde and East Cowes. 
Indeed, if you look at the stub end of the road by the side of the roundabout it appears that this already used as unofficial park-and-ride site.
When I drive to either Cowes or Ryde I use park and ride facilities at both locations, and feel the creation of such  a scheme outside Newport would help to cut the traffic congestion in the town.   

Editor's footnote: The letter Mr Moore refers to was incorrectly labelled as coming from  a Mr D. Armstrong.
In fact it came from Mr A. Thearle, of Newport.
