Newark needs a decent roads planner because the one we have now is a joke.
Councillor Stuart Wallace says Beaumond Cross gets congested (Town Needs One-way System, Advertiser, February 27). The reason is the stupid lights system at the Asda store. Carry on to Castlegate and you can again be in a traffic jam. Why? Because a planner changed the pedestrian crossing there. Now, when a train is at Castle Station traffic builds up because there is only one lane on one side of the crossing and traffic going towards Lincoln cannot get through.

Keep it clean
LITTER is one of the scourges of modern life. At best it’s unsightly and at worst it can pose a significant risk to health. From discarded sweet wrappers to fly-tipped fridges, we see it every single day.
Society needs to guard against it acquiring any degree of normality and acceptability. It’s never been easier to get rid of rubbish responsibly via public litter bins (there is usually one not too far away) or, failing that, simply by taking it home and using a domestic bin. There are indications that a growing number of people are prepared to go the extra mile to help keep communities clean and tidy.
