Say YES to Portswood Road Improvement Plans

We the undersigned petition the council to support the introduction in Portswood of the bus gates and I support diversion of traffic onto Thomas Lewis Way with the benefits this will allow for public transport in the city and the population who use this.

This plan will help improve the air quality in Portswood Road, making it a more pleasant place to shop and spend time in local cafes and restaurants. It will have the additional benefits of improving bus transit times and helping to encourage walking and cycling as active travel alternatives. Also improving disabled parking access. As the city is expanding it is important that public transport runs efficiently for us all.
