A £1.5 MILLION plan to increase pollution! Yes, increase!

I totally agree with Charis Canahan-Pack JP (‘Please think again - no more traffic chaos’, Postbag, October 11).

Who will want to come to Taunton town centre?

People will not want to queue to get in/out of the town, and because of the ensuing gridlock, get fed up and just go to the out-of-town superstores, thus further killing off our already struggling town, and its businesses.

This “plan” will obviously result in extra journey times and extra travelling distances skirting Taunton, thus creating even more pollution.

Unfortunately, I drive in Taunton every day, and I find myself having to go further and further to the outskirts to avoid the traffic, and save time.

What a waste of £1.5 million that is desperately needed elsewhere.
