Residents Proposal for Traffic Filtering

Residents may remember that Friends of Quarry produced a plan for traffic regulation in Quarry in 2013 which can be found on our website.

Recently some residents of Quarry have proposed an alternative idea which involves curtailing the free passage of cars through Quarry. You can find this at https://filterthequarry.wordpress.com, and can comment on the ideas there.
