Excuse me if this has been posted elsewhere but I want to ask if anyone knows what is being done, if anything, to address the traffic queues on Commercial Rd? Last weekend traffic was stacked back to Bosden Avenue at times which is just ridiculous. Traffic on Commercial Rd has got steadily worse as more & more traffic measures have been installed on the A6 e.g. traffic lights for Asda, & as traffic leaves Aldi & M&S. This can't continue & surely the council factored this in when granting permission to Sainsbury's, Asda, Aldi etc to open in the Grove? I'd be interested to know what local councillors have to say on this issue & how it's being addressed?[/QUOTE]

Pal, you are delusional if you think that the council factored in the traffic situation when granting permission for these stores to open. I think you are muddling up the council with people who actually gave a damn about the area. The truth is that huge "environmental" bribes got Sainsburys the permission or should i say the permission to abuse the original permission they had been given originally. We are looking at an area that is having huge amounts of extra housing being built on its doorstep but no consideration for the transport infrastructure.

If another supermarket wanted to open tomorrow on the Royal Oak site fro example, there is little doubt in my mind that permission would be granted without a blink of an eye, just the noise of a few wallets opening.
