Surfboard not safe

In response to your request for readers’ opinions on the ‘surfboard’ for the Heywood Road roundabout (Gazette 03/10), I am obliged to oppose it, and any similar structure, solely on safety grounds, and irrespective of who the proposer is.

No doubt the appropriate safety authority will feel it is their responsibility to judge this proposal in view of the country-wide disagreements on roadside signs and notices and their possible relation to road accidents.
