As simple as the idea is, implementation would be a pain, and the junctions either end would be horrible, and get rid of traffic flow.
The route taken would depend on eventual destination, so the bypass so to speak would be single use for those going from Mayow and then onto A205 East.
With regards to pedestrianisation of Perry Vale, why on earth? Pedestrianisation of yet another high volume road? Just like Waterloo which is next on the list…
Ideally no road would be stuffed with traffic, but at the end of the day it has been like this for decades. The calls for crossings etc are not new but have become popular recently partially due to the increased volumes of commuters to the area. Again, it’s not hard to cross the road safely for most, but laziness plays its part.
The market sounds a wonderful idea. Practical, promotional for the local businesses, and an opportunity for new businesses to flourish. As well as attracting footfall to the area for existing businesses.
I’m sure we all have an idea of how to reduce the traffic in certain areas to best suit us, but sometimes it is what it is.
