WHO thought of the silly idea of making Melbourn Street in Royston one-way?

This would cut Royston in two. How would the traffic get from east to west?

It wouldn't be along the bypass, but down Queens Road, Mill Road, Stamford Avenue, and Green Street, which are residential roads, and not suited for this kind of increase in traffic.

I would expect residents to object to any such proposals.

I can't see what this will achieve, as the cave has been here for the last 700 years.

I don't recall it being damaged when all the lorries were thundering through before the bypass was built.

Also, I can't see any problems with Melbourn Street, except needing an extra crossing near the town hall. As they say, if it's not broken, why change it?

Come on councillors, wake up and smell the coffee, and don't waste our money or time on silly ideas that will cause even more problems for residents and visitors to Royston.
