THE gridlock traffic along the Esplanade from the Pavilion could be partly solved by the following:- Traffic that needs to go to Portland or Chickerell could be directed past the Baptist Church to East Street where it would turn left (by making East Street two way speed limit of 20mph) then taking first right along Mitchell Street past the Working Men’s Club, then a slight left right across Maiden Street and then straight ahead along St Edmund Street to the Town Bridge where the traffic would exit the town over the bridge .

All this could be achieved with just a few signs. It would be interesting to hear if anyone else has any comments on this.
