Let us choose our route
Regarding Trudi Davison's report "road closure will cut town in half" (Mail, January 16).
As part of the Beverley Southern Bypass plan, East Riding Council proposes to close Flemingate at the level crossing to all vehicles, to force use of the Southern Bypass instead of traffic going through Flemingate.
But as ward councillor Kerri Harold rightly says, it will cut the town in half.
All southern Beverley residents and all visitors coming up the A164 will be cut off from going along Flemingate when wishing to visit the Beverley Leisure Complex, the Flemingate Bowling Club green, the new shopping centre on the Beverley Museum site, a building supplies centre and several pubs, including Hodgson's.

Also, southern residents of Beverley wishing to visit the new hospital in Swinemoor Lane, or go to Tickton, Hornsea, etc, will have to go through the centre of Beverley.
Many bowling clubs located south of Beverley will be displeased to go a long way around when visiting Flemingate Bowling Club.
So why doesn't the council let people freely make their own choice of route to use the bypass or go through the town via Flemingate?
