I would support Mrs Brenda Pinkney's idea in her letter in the Gazette of December 3 that parking is restricted in order to ease the traffic flow along Victoria Road, Ruislip Manor [Try my parking scheme for size].
At times it is a total nightmare for a car driver to get through the shopping area, so what it must be like for bus and Heavy Goods Vehicle drivers I cannot imagine.
I have thought for a long time that the pavements are too wide - surely they can be reduced by one third on each side?
If that cannot be done, then parking on alternate sides of the road for morning and afternoon would help. It would also stop commuters from leaving their vehicles parked all day and encourage them to use the car parks.
The 114 bus route through Ruislip Manor cannot be altered, but if the HGVs could be found an alternative route from the A40 to the retail parks adjoining Victoria Road, South Ruislip, that would also help.
The Fairway, South Ruislip.
