I AM very concerned over the decision to abandon the roundabout at the Palace Pier and the additional congestion this will cause.

I have travelled through this roundabout twice a day for over 30 years and have never been held up by any accident.

Or to be precise have never seen one.

This is yet another scheme put forward by those who can easily get to work by public transport and once they are there do not need to leave their office to carry out their work.

I am not alone in needing my car to do my job and I really cannot see how these councillors who complain at a lack of democracy can give us such short regard, especially as this scheme will increase pollution by causing stationary traffic where currently traffic is free flowing.
