Broad Street was closed to traffic supposedly to help with social distancing (the rules of which have now been relaxed, and are expected to be relaxed further imminently).
The road is largely unused by pedestrians and being closed is affecting retailers and shoppers alike.
The road is not being used as al fresco seating areas for the restaurants located on that road.
Disabled bays have been moved to Dumaresq Street meaning those with disabilities are having to walk much further to access essential amenities such as the Post Office.
Access to shops around Charing Cross is hindered by the route of one way roads to get there. Regular parking spaces on Dumaresq Street have been lost to accommodate the replacement disabled parking spaces although they are generally empty anyway due to a combination of being too far for people with disabilities to walk, and too difficult to reach by car.
Please reopen Broad Street!
