Why would there be any increase in traffic on Bromar or Grove Hill Roads? The only place they can get you is onto Champion Hill going east, which is now redundant. The closure should, in fact, lower traffic levels on these roads as they can no longer be used as a ratrun through to Denmark Hill, and indeed the couple of times a week I ride up there on a weekday morning peak it has. Furthermore, living very close to Ivanhoe/Pytchley/Quorn I have noticed no increase in traffic whatsoever, and I walk/cycle them most days. Funny, there have been a lot of complaints on this thread from people complaining that they'll have to take longer/slower journeys now their little ratrun has been closed, and purporting concern for residents in these roads, but I don't recall a single person from any of these roads complaining that they've experienced any rise in traffic level. Why would that be, I wonder?
As it happens, I was walking to hospital recently and was so struck by the lack of traffic on Grove Hill Road (where previously the queues in the AM rush hour from the lights stretched well back over the zebra and beyond due to ratrunners heading for Champion Hill) that I took a snap of it. This was taken at 8.29 AM on Tuesday February 12th. Not exactly Carmageddon, is it? Rather nice for Grove Hill residents, I should think, and the primary school.
