RIP – Pedestrianisation in Aylesbury is dead

Aylesbury town centre as a car free zone is no longer. Lack of funding for the rising bollards means that pedestrians are no longer safe in what they think is their zone. The photos were taken on a Tuesday morning at about 11.00 am. The whole town is now a free for all for motorists, taxi drivers and delivery men, many travelling through the town to miss the traffic lights and jams on the ring road. What can be done about it? Well its appears nothing, as cars use Kingsbury and Buckingham Street as a race track. Motorists are also ignoring ‘NO ENTRY’ signs in both George Street and Market Street. It is such a shame, as further pedestrianisation will be put on hold, as ‘they’ can’t enforce the current zones.

    The bollards join the Kingsbury ‘water’ feature as pieces of town centre technology that have flopped and are now neglected.

    I hope that we will all bear in mind that the town centre ‘pedestrianised’ streets are also intended for use shared with cyclists, as the little circular brass plates embedded in the paved surface indicate.
