Work continues apace in Chichester
Work continues apace in Chichester to make the city centre more “pedestrian friendly”. The main problem is South Street and West Street, which are mostly open to traffic. Well, after the works have been completed, South Street will be closed to all traffic except buses and loading vehicles, and West Street closed to everything except buses east of the junction with Chapel Street. This leaves one big problem though – the buses. There was a case last year when an elderly man was knocked over by a bus going round the corner by the Cross – I have no objections to only buses using that road, but if they are going to make it truly pedestrian friendly, the buses have got to slow down!
