Having spoken to Rob Mayman at considerable length last night, and believing he would do his utmost to avoid unnecessary disruption to traffic flow, I am horrified to see these 2-way traffic lights & bollards take out half of the Beaconsfield top end of the Amersham Road.

Again, Bucks Council, in their infinite wisdom, have removed half a busy road, this time repurposing it to park a single van which could be parked safely, off road a few yards further up or down the Amersham Road. Again this has caused considerable and unnecessary upset to road users.

Again, anyone would think Bucks Council were deliberately annoying road users as they regularly sanction these sort of unnecessary impediments to traffic flow. Please can Bucks Council engage a little common sense, be more considerate to those who pay their wages, and remove these obstructions, post haste.
