I am writing following several occasions of traffic difficulties along Queen Street, Southwell.

Although I live a few miles away, I regularly visit the town, in particular Gossips — what a delightful place.

Recently, I witnessed a bus missing a delivery van by a fraction.

Can I suggest traffic is restricted from 9.30am to 4pm, especially on Saturdays.

It causes havoc and is somewhat unpleasant for those sitting outside the deli and shoppers.

I mentioned the idea to the some shop staff who said no one had suggested it, and they felt businesses would benefit as it would enhance the experience for all concerned.

I do not expect people to always agree, but maybe someone on the council reading this will trigger a movement towards it. MARK WILSON, Berry Park, Mansfield.
