Traffic using the pedestrian zone

I HAVE just got around to reading Coun John McCormack’s letter (News Post Leader, March 24).

On Ashington’s Station Road between the hours of 4pm and 10pm there is more traffic through the pedestrian zone than at the Tyne Tunnel, this includes all day Sunday.

There is no point in putting up signs if they are ignored.

This also applies to streets off Wansbeck Road when the schools are coming out, which are ‘no entry’, back street premises only.
