COULD County Councillor Doug Drake explain the logic behind the decision taken by Herts County Council to put a subway railway crossing at Coombes Hole?
I believe, in the past, he has always advocated that a subway crossing should be situated at the junction of Green Street and Morton Street.
It seems that common sense doesn't come into making such a decision.
The county council committee, British Transport Police and the local police state the main illegal crossing of the railway is at a point around the Morton Street-Green Street area.
Are the people that trespass at this point going to walk to Coombes Hole - where there is not a problem - and cross.
You have got to be kidding.

If they are prepared to risk their lives illegally crossing at that point, which is where the subway should be, the issues raised about it not being a straight walk to town are an absolute nonsense.
