From what we’ve read in the last day or so, LOTS of people enjoyed strolling along Camberley’s High Street on Saturday without having to dodge in and out of traffic. Who wouldn’t want to do that more often?
We’ve been banging on about pedestrianising the High Street for more years than we care to remember. Not total pedestrianisation – but, for example, at those times when there are plenty of shoppers, with push-chairs and children, about.
The borough council has been promising improvements in the High Street’s pedestrian environment for at least fifteen years. Yet it’s done virtually nothing. (Some would argue that it’s done nothing at all.) So is this the time for the residents – whom the council is suppose to serve – to apply pressure to get something done?
If you support the idea, spread the word about, and maybe – just maybe – we’ll persuade the council to get off its corporate bottom. Otherwise, we’ll be stuck with traffic in the High Street for another fifteen years.
