AS we have had some lovely sunny weather, I have already noticed, particularly on a Sunday, that traffic is mainly turning right for the Peak District.
I think it is now time to think seriously about introducing a one-way system (right) in Ashbourne as, with a filter system, there would be no need for traffic lights, except pedestrian ones.
When you visit most small towns these days, they all have a one-way system to ease traffic congestion and are successful.
During the winter months, we tend to forget about the serious traffic congestion Ashbourne has.
So let's have a trial period that may encourage visitors to stay a while and enjoy this historical town instead of them remembering Ashbourne as a long traffic jam, providing they can find a parking place – but that's another problem.
