Keep Wallingford bridge open

This petition had 2,206 supporters

We believe that closing Wallingford bridge to traffic would cause irreparable damage to businesses in the town and lead to increased rather than reduced atmospheric pollution. A solution which leads to more vehicle miles (as travellers access the town through Winterbrook or down Wantage Road) and to increased idling time because of the congestion on both those roads (both of which are effectively single-carriageway for much of their length due to residential parking) is unlikely to reduce emissions, merely to displace them. We ask SODC Councillors not to proceed with this scheme but to investigate alternatives such as a one-way system which would reduce vehicle idling times everywhere in the town.
