I don't favour making difficulties for traffic just for the sake of it, however if changes make things better for pedestrians and cyclists but worse for motor vehicle users then that's fine with me. Maybe if motor vehicle users get the idea that it's a nightmare to negotiate the area then they will steer clear (or if local, try other ways to get around). And if so, I think we'd all ultimately be better off.
I pretty much agree with you, except that the traffic thing is pretty much a zero sum game imo.
I think there are things we can do to ease traffic flow, and that those things will in turn help all other street users (and I say this as someone who's mostly a pedestrian).

...if you press it, they will come.

Just opened my front door and parked within 8 foot of my door is a beautiful white coach umpteen feet long parked in resident parking area. And it's not Cinderella's a foreign coach perhaps he may not be aware....or he may get flour bombed if he's picking up guests from Driscoll house in the early hours of the morning! Traffic wardens are getting a call in the morning as your not supposed to park on this side of our little street.. Hijacked this post, sorry ...

Today is the last day to register your objection. Please do so if, like me and other contributors to this forum, you think it is a very bad idea to prevent traffic from Bermondsey Street exiting via Tanner Street or Leathermarket Street.

Surely we can reverse the direction of one-way traffic on these streets. Surely we can improve roads for cyclists AND allow traffic to exit Bermondsey Street rather than add to the congestion on Bermondsey Street.
